Emergency crews were called to a fatal crash in central Alberta that killed three people and sent two others to hospital.
The crash happened on Highway 12 near Range Road 43, east of Rocky Mountain House, at about 7:20 a.m. Tuesday.
Clearwater Fire officials say two vehicles were involved and that the roads were icy and snow packed at the time of the crash.
STARS crews from Calgary and Edmonton were dispatched to the area but were called off because they were no longer required.
Three males died in the crash and two other patients were transported to Hospital in Rocky Mountain House.
511 Alberta says Highway 12 is closed on either side of the crash scene and traffic is being diverted.
