Whitehorse RCMP say "several" people were taken to hospital in serious condition on Saturday afternoon, following a collision at the intersection of the Alaska Highway and Robert Service Way.

In a news release on Monday, police say they responded to the collision at about 5:25 p.m. on Saturday. The intersection was closed for about an hour while emergency officials responded to those injured and cleared vehicle debris from the roadway.

Witnesses saw a heavily-damaged small car and an upside-down pickup truck at the scene.

In the news release, police thanked "the many bystanders and witnesses who were in the area at the time who provided assistance."
