SCHULER, Alta. — RCMP in southern Alberta say the driver of a passenger vehicle has died after an apparent head-on collision with a semi that was hauling flammable liquid.
Police say they got a 911 call about the crash Thursday evening on Highway 41 North, just south of the hamlet of Schuler.
They say the fact the semi was hauling flammable liquid caused a significant risk to the public, and they say the road was closed in both directions for several hours to allow for cleanup and further investigation.
Police say the 29-year-old man from Alberta who was the sole occupant of the passenger vehicle was pronounced dead the scene.
The 64-year-old semi driver suffered minor injuries.
Police are continuing to investigate.
