One man is dead following a New Year’s Day collision just west of Fort Macleod.
Fort Macleod RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision on Highway 3, approximately three kilometres west of Fort Macleod Saturday at 9:10 a.m.
The preliminary investigation indicated a passenger car had been traveling eastbound on Highway 3 when it entered the westbound lanes colliding with a pick-up truck.
The driver and lone occupant of the passenger car, a 52-year-old Lethbridge resident, was airlifted in critical condition by STARS to a Calgary hospital where he died from his injuries.
The driver of the pick-up truck was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries. 
Traffic on Highway 3 was redirected for a few hours as RCMP continued to investigate.
All possible contributing factors relating to the collision are being considered and the collision remains under investigation.
RCMP say the name of the deceased will not be released at this time.
