A 33-year-old Onion Lake woman is dead following a single vehicle rollover yesterday morning.


Anita Whitstone was driving an SUV that left a highway and rolled about 7 kilometres west of Onion Lake, on the Alberta side of the border.


Whitstone was pronounced dead at the scene, but the RCMP say she was not ejected from the vehicle.


Four others in the SUV were taken to hospital in Lloydminster with undetermined injuries.


Meanwhile, the 18-year-old victim of another accident in the Lloydminster area has been identified as Angel Bill of the Leoville district.


Bill and a 20-year-old woman were ejected from a vehicle that rolled on Highway #3, approximately 16 kilometers west of Paradise Hill.


The two women were not wearing seatbelts at the time of Saturday’s crash.


The second woman was taken to hospital with undetermined injuries and her name has not been released.
