A small community in BC's Shuswap region has been hit hard by a fatal car crash in Saskatchewan.
Three members of one family from Sorrento, a father and two teenage children, were killed in a two vehicle crash in southwest Saskatchewan Sunday.
Douglas Janzen, 47 and Alli Janzen, 19, were both killed in the crash.
Cassidy Janzen, 13, died of injuries later in hospital.
Pat Janzen, 42 and Cody Janzen, 16, are both still in hospital with undisclosed injuries.
Police at the scene say a westbound car attempted to pass a transport truck near the town of Rosetown, but collided head-on with an eastbound SUV.
It was raining at the time of the crash and police say visibility was restricted because of spray from the transport truck.
Both occupants of the SUV have also been taken to hospital.
