RCMP says a 79-year-old Mackenzie man is in hospital after a crash on Highway 39 yesterday.
Investigators say it appears the man’s small car crossed the centre line of the highway and collided with a transport truck.
The driver of the car suffered serious injuries but is reported to be in stable condition.
The road was shut down with a detour around the accident site.
RCMP expect Highway 39 to fully reopen before noon Thursday.
