One person is in hospital after a head-on collision west of Drumheller this morning.
 
Emergency crews were called out to Highway 575 near Highway 836 just after 9:30 a.m. after a pickup truck collided with a semi-tanker.
 
The pickup driver, an adult male, was taken by ambulance to the Foothills Health Centre in Calgary in serious but stable condition. We don't have his name.
 
Details are still sketchy, but the pickup appeared to have been eastbound and crossed the centre line into the path of the larger truck. The big truck driver was unhurt.
 
RCMP did not believe that road conditions or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
