Separate crashes on Alberta's highways yesterday have taken the lives of three people.

RCMP say the first crash killed a 19-year-old man Tuesday morning as he was making a turn near High River and was hit by another vehicle.

A 51-year-old man died at the scene when the pickup truck he was driving collided with a transport truck pulling a wide load on Highway 63 north of Fort McKay around 5 p.m. 

Then an hour later, a man driving a car died when his vehicle collided with a semi at an intersection east of Calgary.

A passenger in each case was taken to hospital.

No names have been released.
