The fatal collision occurred at about 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, March 5 on Highway 27.It appears a Nissan Maxima, driven by a male occupant, lost control when it hit a snowdrift. While trying to wrestle the car under control, it crossed into the path of an oncoming Ledcor snowplow. The snowplow driver escaped the accident unscathed physically.Drumheller RCMP, the Drumheller Fire Department, the Morrin Fire Department and Badlands EMS responded to the scene. Traffic was blocked at either side of the accident, and resumed flow at about noon. The plow involved in the collision was able to help clear the road of snow following the accident to allow traffic flow to resume.Staff Sergeant Art Hopkins said road conditions and visibility were very poor at the time of the collision.
