Police are investigating after an ATV crash on Canada Day left three people dead and one injured.
Around 11:13 p.m. on July 1, RCMP received a report of a collision between two ATVs on Highway 925, just outside Dillon, SK.
Officers from Dillon RCMP arrived at the scene and located the two ATVs, which were on fire.
The Dillon Fire Department was contacted to extinguish the fires and additional officers from Buffalo Narrows were called to assist with traffic control and scene security.
Nurses from the Buffalo River Dene Nation Health Centre were on scene providing first aid to those involved in the collision.
