Just after 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Morinville RCMP were called to a serious motor vehicle collision on Highway 44, between Township Road 570 and Township Road 571, about 40 kilometres northwest of St. Albert, RCMP said in a statement.

Traffic is being diverted around the collision scene and is expected to continue for several hours, RCMP said.

The RCMP collision analyst is at the scene investigating and the next-of-kin notification is pending, according to the statement.
