A 44-year-old woman is dead after a crash in the rural municipality of Brokenhead on Tuesday morning. A pickup truck driving east hit the passenger side of a southbound SUV around 8 a.m. at the intersection of Road 40E and Road 79N, RCMP said.

The driver of the SUV was rushed to hospital, but she was later pronounced dead.

The two occupants of the pickup truck suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

RCMP said alcohol does not appear to be a factor, and they are using a traffic analyst to investigate what led to the collision.
