RCMP say a family of three, including a baby, has been killed in a head-on crash with a tractor trailer in Agassiz, B.C.

Police say it happened early Tuesday morning on Lougheed Highway just outside the community.

The two adults in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene, and the infant was airlifted to hospital but died a few hours later.

Police say alcohol or drugs are not suspected as a cause and they are working with a collision reconstruction team to determine what led to the crash.

The driver in the semi was not injured.

RCMP Sgt. Andy Lot, Agassiz's detachment commander, says in a statement that he wants to thank his officers and first responders who attended the tragic accident for their hard work and dedication to serving the victims and their families.

"We are working on supporting all those who were affected from this crash and loss of an entire family. I have engaged the mental health supports for all of those involved," Lot says.
