A 17-year-old boy is dead after an accident over the long weekend involving off-road vehicles near Taber.

Emergency crews were called to a park northeast of Grassy Lake known as "The Forks” on Saturday for reports of a collision involving two off-highway vehicles.

The teenager was flown to hospital by STARS air ambulance, Taber-Vauxhall RCMP said.

He later died in hospital.

Two other people were taken to local hospitals, police said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. It isn’t known whether alcohol was a factor.
