The Spirit River RCMP says two people in a pick-up that crossed the centre line were killed and the driver of a second pick-up involved in the crash, died in Grande Prairie hospital.

A passenger in the second vehicle is still in Grande Prairie hospital being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The initial police investigation in this case suggests speed and driver inattention may have been crash factors.

The family has asked that the RCMP withhold the names of the deceased.
