A 19-year-old Tower Hill woman died as a result of her injuries following an accident on Highway 3 in Harvey Thursday evening.
McAdam RCMP responded to the crash at approximately 7:30 p.m. The collision appears to have occurred when the victim’s vehicle, which was travelling eastbound on Highway 3, lost control and struck a westbound transport truck.
The woman was transported to hospital, where she passed away from injuries sustained in the crash. She was the lone occupant of the vehicle. The driver of the transport truck was not injured.
An investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, but weather and road conditions are believed to have been factors.
