Mounties in Cold Lake say two people have died and multiple others were hurt after a Monday morning crash near Ardmore.
The RCMP are releasing more details after the intersection of Highway 28 and Highway 892 was closed down for sometime on Monday. Officers say the accident occured at around 6 AM after a community Peace Officer from Bonnyville attempted to stop a four-door car that was headed southbound.
Mounties say they believe the car ran through the stop sign at the intersection and then collided with a pickup truck that was headed east on Highway 28.
