Piikani RCMP respond to fatal crash on Highway 3

A 75-year-old Pincher Creek man was killed Tuesday morning in a head-on crash involving a cattle liner and car.

Piikani RCMP remain on scene and traffic is being re-routed through the Piikani Nation.

Larger commercial vehicles are not able to pass at this time as cattle are being removed.

The detour is anticipated to last several hours.

Piikani and Pincher Creek RCMP responded about 9 a.m. Tuesday to a collision between a car and cattle liner on Highway 3 about 15 kilometres east of Brocket.

Preliminary investigation revealed that a car was heading eastbound on Highway 3 when it struck a westbound cattle liner head-on.

The lone occupant of the car, a 75-year-old man from Pincher Creek, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the cattle liner was not injured.

Roads conditions were icy and snow covered at the time of the collision.

The name of the deceased will not be released.
