Emergency crews responding to serious collision on TransCanada Highway – ***UPDATE ***

Cochrane, Alberta – The initial investigation has determined the following: a cube van was eastbound on Hwy. 1, west of Morley Road, when it veered through the median and into the westbound lanes. This eastbound cube van caused a head-on collision with a white car. Simultaneously, a westbound semi was unable to avoid the collision and rear-ended the white car. A westbound cube van then struck the westbound semi.

Two occupants of the white car have been confirmed deceased. Three additional patients (driver and passenger of the eastbound cube van, and driver of the westbound cube van) were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
