An RCMP officer at the scene says a four door Nissan sedan with three occupants was travelling eastbound on McCurdy, when it was struck by a large black Ford truck.

The truck was travelling westbound on McCurdy and was attempting a left hand turn onto Rutland Road, when it crashed into the Nissan’s driver side door.
