One person is dead after a semi slammed into their vehicle Tuesday afternoon on the outskirts of North Battleford, Sask. It happened around 4:40 p.m. CT at the intersection of highways 16 and 40 next to the Western Development Museum.
Mounties say a westbound semi lost control, went across a ditch and smashed into a SUV waiting for the traffic light to change.
The impact of the crash pushed both vehicles to the train tracks.
The driver of the SUV was killed instantly. His name has not been released.
