Two people are dead and a third taken to hospital after an out-of-control tow truck hit an SUV near Langdon on Wednesday.


A third person was taken to hospital in serious but stable condition.


RCMP said a tow truck driver heading east on Glenmore Trail lost control, crashing into the SUV, killing both the driver and passenger.


One individual was taken to Foothills Hospital by ambulance in serious but stable condition, according to EMS spokesperson Adam Loria.


Police and paramedics were called to the scene on Highway 560 (Glenmore Trail) at around 9:15 a.m.

RCMP said they were in the process of notifying the victims' family. 


At the time of the crash, the road was icy, according to police.


The RCMP's Strathmore and collision analyst units were working together to investigate the crash.


Traffic on Glenmore Trail west of Highway 791 was being rerouted to Range Road 283, which was expected to continue for several hours.
