Two dead, two injured after Thursday afternoon crash on Highway 11

Two men are dead and another two in hospital after an accident on Highway 11 near Osler Thursday afternoon that left the northbound lane of the highway closed for a good portion of the evening.

RCMP say they were called to an area two kilometers south of the turnoff to Osler around 3:45.  The call came after reports a few minutes earlier of a black truck driving through a ditch knocking over signs.   When they arrived, they found that truck along with a tan truck and a black SUV that had been involved in a crash.

The 79-year-old driver of the black truck was pronounced dead at the scene, as was the 56-year-old man who was driving the SUV.  The 70-year-old driver of the tan truck and a 22-year-old man who was a passenger in the SUV were taken to hospital, but their conditions are not known.

Police say an investigation into what caused the collision is ongoing.
