ORIGINAL STORY

Thorsby RCMP are investigating a serious, multi-vehicle collision on Highway 770 at the Genesee Mining Operation entrance. Three highway tractor units and one truck are involved in the collision, and RCMP will be on scene for several hours.

At 8:14 this morning, RCMP were dispatched to attend this collision. One male has been transported, via ground ambulance, with unknown injuries to an area hospital.

Traffic is detoured on Highway 770 and cannot access the Genesee Mining Operation. Alberta 511 is updated. It is anticipated that RCMP will remain on scene and traffic will be detoured for several more hours.

While the cause of this collision remains under investigation, it is believed that heavy fog in the area was a contributing factor to the collision.

An update will be provided when the scene is cleared and traffic is flowing again.
