Rosetown Fire Department and Ambulance also responded. The two occupants of the SUV were pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver and sole occupant of the semi was provided medical assistance by paramedics and was taken to nearby hospital for treatment of what were described as minor injuries.
Initial investigation indicates that the semi was travelling eastbound and the SUV was travelling westbound along Highway 7 west of Fiske when the SUV crossed over the centre line, entering the oncoming traffic lane. A head-on collision resulted.
The cargo of the semi spilled and police confirmed it was not dangerous.

Highway 7 remained closed with detours in place for the majority of the day as the scene was cleared and the investigation took place.
The highway has since reopened to traffic.
