One of two people killed on an icy highway in northern Alberta was an armoured car guard.

RCMP say a G4S armoured vehicle collided head-on with a pickup truck Tuesday on Highway 63 south of Fort McMurray.

Cst. Natasha Lytwenko says the driver of the pickup was also killed.

A second security guard inside the armoured vehicle was not injured.

Three G4S guards were shot and killed by a fellow crew member in 2012, as they were reloading ATM machines at the University of Alberta.


Another guard who was shot in the head survived the shooting.

Travis Baumgartner, 22, is serving life in prison with no chance at parole for 40 years.
