A woman and young girl were both taken to hospital with serious injuries after a T-bone collision south of Calgary Thursday evening.
Emergency crews were called to the two-vehicle crash around 5:30 p.m. on Highway 2 at 338 Avenue, about five kilometres northeast of Okotoks.
RCMP said a southbound pick-up truck collided with a four-door sedan that was attempting to cross east, in order to get on to the northbound lanes. A woman believed to be in her 30s and a preschooler were in the car.
AHS said the woman was airlifted by STARS Air Ambulance to the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary in potentially critical condition with possible internal injuries.
