A Vernon man is dead after a deadly crash south of Valemount Friday. It happened around 4 p.m. some 18 km north of Blue River on Hwy 5.

RCMP say a pick-up truck and a tractor-trailer collided head on, killing the driver of the pick-up on scene.

Two other men were riding in the pick-up. Both men were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries.

RCMP say there was heavy snow and slushy conditions at the time of the crash, but the cause is still under investigation.
