RCMP believe alcohol was a factor in a fatal crash on the TransCanada Highway west of Calgary Wednesday morning.
RCMP along with paramedics from Cochrane, Calgary, Nakoda , and STARS air ambulance were called out after 9 o’clock this morning for reports of a rollover.
Officials say a van rolled multiple times and two adults, confirmed to be from the Stoney Nakoda Nation, were ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
Five patients-four women and one man were rushed to Calgary hospitals; four by EMS, and one by STARS.
RCMP have closed eastbound lanes of Highway 1 near the weigh scales at Hermitage Road. One lane of traffic is getting through via the weigh scales.
