Two people were killed Friday and two others were taken to hospital after a crash on Highway 21 south of Township Road 514 on the southeast outskirts of Edmonton.

Two children were also assessed on scene but not taken to hospital.

The collision made the busy highway "impassible" for several hours, RCMP said.

Police initially said that three vehicles were involved, but later updated that it was four. The scene has now been cleared and police continue to investigate.
