A 26 year old Blood Tribe man is dead and three others injured after a semi and a pick-up truck collided south of Claresholm Thursday morning.

Fort Macleod RCMP say the semi was heading west on Highway 519 near Granum at about 9:30am and after stopping at the intersection, it turned north onto Highway 2.

That’s when it was hit by a northbound pick-up truck.

The 33 year old female driver from Lethbridge and a 29 year old male passenger from the Blood Tribe suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a local hospital by EMS.
