RCMP Blackfalds are continuing the investigation.  It is unsure if alcohol or distracted driving was a contributing factor in this collision.   Speed did not appear to be a contributing factor.  Highway 595 was shut down for four hours while emergency service completed their work and the RCMP continued their investigation.
The names of the drivers and passenger are not being released at this time
