One fatality, police caution drivers at collision scene

One person is dead after a multi-vehicle collision on Highway 16.

Lloydminster RCMP say they were called to the scene around 2 p.m. Tuesday on 44th Street (Highway 16) and 66th Avenue. Lloydminster RCMP as well as Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the incident.

Authorities say a preliminary investigation has revealed a brown Ford F150 travelling west struck a car in the turning lane in the intersection, which then caused 3-additional vehicles to be involved in the collision.

A 20-year-old Kitscoty man who was a passenger in the car was declared deceased on scene, while the 22-year-old female driver from Lloydminster was taken to hospital with serious injuries, police indicate.

EMS crews assessed the other drivers and passengers involved in the collision and several were transported to hospital as well.

Lloydminster RCMP is reminding the public about driving habits around emergency scenes. They say many people were slowing down and stopping to watch the scene via adjacent service roads and this caused more traffic issues in the area.

Anyone with additional information, or who witnessed the collision is urged to call the Lloydminster RCMP at 780-808-8400.

RCMP and City of Lloydminster Peace Officers ticketed several people for distracted driving and stop-sign violations. They also saw several additional near-miss collisions. They advise to drive safe around emergency scenes and avoid the area when possible.
