Two people were killed in a head-on crash between an SUV and a transport truck along Highway 95, south of Golden.
RCMP officials believe the SUV driver lost control while travelling north on Thursday shortly before noon.
The vehicle collided with a southbound truck and both vehicles caught on fire.
Golden RCMP officials say both people in the SUV died in the crash, but the two people inside the transport truck were treated for minor injuries.
Highway 95 was closed from about noon to 6 p.m. while first responders were on the scene.
This was the second fatal crash this week along local highways in as many days.
