One person is dead after a crash on Highway 55, about five kilometers west of Pierceland in northwest Saskatchewan.

    Few details are available, but RCMP say one person has been killed in the single vehicle crash, and several others were injured.

    Highway 55 was closed part of the morning, but since then one lane has been opened. RCMP caution travel is slow through the accident zone.

    Pierceland is about 380 kilometers northwest of Saskatoon.
