A Winnipeg man has died after a major crash near Wood Buffalo, Alta. Saturday.
RCMP believe a transport truck headed south on Highway 63 near Fort McKay drove over the centre line and collided head-on with a northbound truck carrying an oversize load.
The driver of the southbound truck, a 38-year-old Winnipeg man, died as a result of the crash, RCMP said.
Poor weather and bad road conditions were a factor in the fatal crash, said RCMP.
The crash forced officers to close the highway for over a day while they investigated.
RCMP have not determined what caused the crash and will not be releasing the name of the man who died.
