Kitscoty RCMP says one person has been killed and another seriously injured in an accident one kilometre north of Kitscoty.
Initial investigation has determined that a northbound pickup truck after passing two vehicles struck the rear end of a third vehicle, also travelling northbound. The pickup truck then lost control and went into the east ditch. An adult passenger was located dead at the scene and the driver has been airlifted to an Edmonton hospital with serious life-threatening injuries.
The investigation is ongoing and no factors have been ruled out yet.
