Two drivers were sent to hospital following a two-vehicle crash west of Edmonton Wednesday morning.
Emergency crews were called to the collision on Highway 16A at Range Road 261 at around 6:50 a.m.
The collision was affecting both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Highway 16A, RCMP said. The eastbound lanes were blocked by the collision with traffic heavily backed up before 7:30 a.m. At that time, westbound traffic was down to one lane.
Traffic was diverted and those heading east were asked to detour onto Highway 60.
The two drivers of the vehicles — a 25-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman — were taken to hospital with serious injuries, according to RCMP.
Police said road conditions were poor due to overnight snowfall.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
