Two people are dead following a two-vehicle collision last night north of Prince Albert.

The crash on Highway 2, five kilometers north of the city, was reported around 8 pm.

Police say a southbound pick-up driven by a 30-year-old man from the Little Red River reserve crossed into the northbound lane.

The truck crashed into an SUV driven by a 66-year-old man from Christopher Lake.

Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene.

A 62-year-old female passenger in the SUV was taken to hospital with multiple injuries.

The investigation into the cause of the collision continues.
