A child of under 5 was ejected from the vehicle and is in critical condition in hospital. The other four occupants of the vehicle were seriously injured and are hospitalized.

The truck involved in the incident left the scene before police arrived.

RCMP asks anyone with information about the incident to contact Didsbury Detachment at (403) 335-3382.
