A 58-year-old Red Deer man was pronounced dead at the scene dead after his semi trailer collided with another semi trailer Jan. 11th on Hwy. 2 near Lacombe.

At approximately 4:00 p.m., Innisfail and Ponoka Traffic services responded to a collision on Highway 2 near Lacombe involving two semi trucks.
