Two airlifted to hospital after collision at Alberta, B.C. border

"Expect and be prepared for winter road conditions on Hwy 93S."

BANFF – Two women are being treated for multiple traumatic injuries following a car crash near the Alberta and British Columbia border on Monday morning (Nov. 8).

According to a Banff RCMP Facebook post, a vehicle collision occurred near Boom Lake and Storm Mountain on Highway 93 South, approximately 40 kilometres from the Banff townsite.

As a result, two women aged 25 and 31 were transferred by EMS to Banff Mineral Springs Hospital before being airlifted to Calgary by STARS air ambulance.

"Both patients were in stable condition when we arrived at Foothills Medical Centre," said STARS spokesperson Deborah Tetley in an email.

At around 10:45 a.m., the Banff RCMP updated its post and said: "The scene is being cleared and the road should be fully open shortly ... Expect and be prepared for winter road conditions on Hwy 93S."

The Outlook will update the story when more information is available.
