CALGARY – A one-year-old boy is dead after the pickup truck he was riding in crashed into a pair of semi trucks Wednesday evening.

Police said a second boy, aged 3 or 4, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, but was later upgraded to stable. He had several broken bones, but is expected to survive.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. The boys’ mother lost control of her truck, went over a median and hit the two semi trucks, police said.
