A Fort Saskatchewan resident has died after trying to help a stranded driver.
 
On Tuesday (Nov.13) night, members of the RCMP say a moving truck veered off Highway 2 near Havelock, New Brunswick and rolled into the ditch. Two drivers stopped to help the driver of the truck who was injured.
 
A transport truck traveling in the same direction tried to move over into the left-hand lane, away from the vehicles on the right side of the highway, but jack-knifed. The trailer hit the two vehicles and drivers who had stopped to provide aid.
 
A 33-year-old woman, originally from New Brunswick but was living in Fort Saskatchewan, died from her injuries. Her name was not released. The driver of the other vehicle and the driver of the moving truck were taken to hospital with serious injuries.
 
The investigation is ongoing. Weather conditions are believed to have been a factor.
