A Mayerthorpe, Alta., man is dead following a head-on crash just north of Edmonton last night.

The 37-year-old man was driving his car north on Highway 28 near Highway 37 when he was hit by an oncoming pick-up truck that lost control on a hill at 7:45 p.m. Monday.

The driver of the pick-up was taken to the hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Road conditions at the time of the crash may have been a factor, police said.
