A 29-year-old St. Albert woman died in a fiery head-on crash on Unipouheos First Nation late Monday night.

Around 11:30 p.m. police responded to a 911 call about a possible explosion on Highway 897 about 250 kilometres northeast of St. Albert.

Officers located the head-on collision between two vehicles. One of the vehicles had caught fire. Emergency and fire services attended the call and extinguished the flames. 

Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene.

The St. Albert woman was the driver and lone occupant of one vehicle, and a 39-year-old man from Moosomin First Nation in Saskatchewan was the driver and only occupant of the other vehicle.

Police said their names will not be released.

Elk Point RCMP, along with an RCMP collision reconstructionist, are investigating.
