A head-on collision last Sunday March 3rd sent five people to hospital.

The two-vehicle collision happened on Range Road 290 near 722 Avenue East just before noon.

Nanton RCMP attended the scene along with EMS and tow trucks.

Five occupants from both vehicles had various injuries, some serious but non-life threatening and were transported to hospital.

Both vehicles had to be towed.

It's possible low visibility due to blowing snow along with a fresh dump of snow contributed to the cause of the collision but the investigation is ongoing.
