Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a crash that left one person dead Sunday morning after a pickup truck collided with a train.
RCMP say just before 2:30 a.m. a Ford pickup truck collided with the side of a westbound CN freight train on Edgewood Road in the RM of Springfield.
Three people were in the truck travelling westbound at the time of the crash, located south of Highway 15 about eight kilometres west of Anola.
The male driver and a female passenger were taken to hospital with undetermined injuries. Another man was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The railway crossing was marked with crossing signs and a stop sign, police say.
No names will be released.
