An Edmonton teenager was killed on Highway 63 after his SUV slammed into a semi truck heading in the other direction Friday morning.
Police say the 18-year-old`s vehicle was just south of Wandering River when it crossed the centre line and hit the tractor trailer.
Paramedics tried to rush the driver and lone occupant of the SUV to hospital, but RCMP said he died while en route to the hospital.
The section of highway where the crash occurred was closed in both directions for several hours Friday; police said it would reopen at about 5 p.m.
Investigators are looking at determining what caused the crash; factors such as speed, alcohol or distracted driving have not been ruled out.
