On June 14th, 2016 at 5:34 P.M, Leduc RCMP, along with Leduc and Edmonton emergency services responded to a two vehicle collision on Range Road 244 at 41st Avenue in Leduc, Alberta.

A white pick up truck, driven by a 41 year old male, was traveling north on Range Road 244 approaching 41st Avenue.  The male began to go into medical distress and collided with the vehicle in front of him.  The collision was minor in nature. However, the driver of the white truck was unresponsive to witnesses on scene.

Access to the vehicle was gained and the driver was removed.   CPR was initiated until fire and EMS arrived on scene. The male was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. The driver of the other vehicle involved did not sustain any injuries. Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor.  The matter is still under investigation.
