Three people are dead after the SUV they were in was hit head-on by a half-ton truck early Christmas morning.
Melville RCMP say they were called to an area about 16 kilometres west of Melville on Highway 10 where an initial investigation shows the truck, driven by a 26-year old man from the Yorkton area, crossed the centre line and hit the SUV. A 16 year-old man, a 48 year-old man and a 51-year old woman were killed with the 18-year old female driver being taken to hospital with undetermined injuries. The driver of the truck was treated and released at the scene.
The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
The accident forced a closure of Highway 10 for about six hours.
No names are being released.
