On February 2nd, 2011 at approximately 8:15 p.m., Leduc RCMP were alerted to a two vehicle collision on Range Road 264 and Township Road 494.

Leduc RCMP immediately attended the location along with Emergency Medical Services and Fire Services.  Upon arriving on the scene, RCMP observed a grey Chevrolet Pick Up truck facing west across Range Road 264 and a second vehicle, a green Chevrolet Pick Up truck in the ditch facing west on the north east corner of the intersection.

Emergency Medical Services were tending to the male driver of the green Chevrolet pickup who had been ejected from the vehicle during the collision and landed several meters away in the snow.

After further investigation, it is believed that the driver of the grey Chevrolet pick up truck was northbound on Range Road 264 when it was struck by an east bound green Chevrolet pickup truck at the intersection of Township Road 494.

The driver of the green pickup truck failed to yield at the intersection as indicated by sign.  The 32 year old male driver of the grey pickup truck who is from Calmar, AB sustained only minor injuries in the collision. He was the lone occupant in his vehicle.

The male driver of the green pickup truck who was the lone occupant in his vehicle, was transported to hospital by ground ambulance however, the 41 yr old male from Leduc, AB died at the hospital as a result of his injuries.

Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in this collision.  The deceased male was scheduled to appear in Leduc Provincial Court in November after being charged with Impaired Operation in August of 2010.

The name of the deceased is not being released.
