On Nov. 13, at 6:10 p.m., Moose Jaw RCMP received a report of a head-on collision on Highway 2, 41 kilometres north of Moose Jaw. First responders from the Bethune Fire Department and Moose Jaw EMS were called to assist.
When officers arrived on the scene, they observed two cars with considerable front end damage blocking the highway. The sole occupant of the northbound vehicle, a 25-year-old female from Moose Jaw, was transported by STARS to hospital in Regina for treatment of what are believed to be serious injuries.
The sole occupant of the southbound vehicle, a 23-year-old female from Saskatoon, was declared deceased on the scene. An autopsy has been ordered at a date to be determined. Her family has been notified of her death and the RCMP is not releasing her name.
There is no indication that alcohol or drugs were a factor in this collision.
Traffic in both directions was rerouted until shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday morning as officers investigated the collision and the scene was cleared.
The investigation is ongoing with the assistance of the Saskatchewan Coroners Service and a Saskatchewan RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist.
