Taber RCMP say a southbound pickup truck on Hwy 36 collided with a northbound van around 7 a.m. Friday morning just south of Secondary Hwy 875.
Cpl. Deanna Fontaine says, the lone occupant of the truck, the driver and two passengers of the van were pronounced deceased. The six other passengers of the van have been transported to various hospitals.
Traffic in the area is being diverted from Hwy 36 between Secondary Highway 875 and Township Road 112. It's anticipated this will remain in effect for several hours.
Motorists are asked to avoid the area or expect delays.
Taber RCMP, along with an RCMP Collision Analyst, continue to investigate.
