Written by Javed Iqbal

A 24-year-old woman was flown to hospital in Calgary by STARS Air Ambulance after a crash on a highway north of the town of Cochrane on Saturday.

RCMP say emergency crews responded to the scene, at the intersection of Highway 22 and Highway 567, at approximately 11 on Saturdays.

Officials say STARS was also called to the scene.

Officials with the service say a 24-year-old woman was flown from the scene to Foothills Medical Center in Calgary in critical condition.

RCMP told CTV News that several other people were injured in the crash.

“At this point, between the two vehicles, there were seven occupants,” said Cpl. Susan Richter with the RCMP.

“Four had minor to moderate injuries, two were transported to hospital and one is in critical, life-threatening condition.”

RCMP say the crash affected traffic in the area for several hours, but the crash has since been cleared.

Richter says police are still looking to talk to anyone who may have witnessed the crash and may know more about what happened.

“There were a number of people who remained at the scene who we have already spoken to and we appreciate that.”
