TABER – A head-on collision shut down Highway 36 just north of Taber Friday morning, Aug. 10.

RCMP said it happened at around 6:40 a.m. between Township Roads 102 and 104 and involved two SUVs heading in opposite directions. Each had a single occupant. The male driver of a southbound pickup was airlifted to hospital by HALO, but died en route. 

The driver of the northbound SUV was taken to the hospital in Lethbridge where the person remains in serious condition.

The highway has now re-opened to traffic, after it was closed for several hours. A collision analyst was called to the scene.
