A late model Ford pick-up lost control and rolled into a guard rail. An 8 year old child, who was a passenger in the vehicle, succumbed to her injuries as a result of the collision.

On January 6, 2017, after a thorough investigation into the incident, the Thorsby/Breton RCMP and RCMP Traffic Services Unit arrested the 40 year old female driver from Edmonton, Alberta.

She has been charged with:

1. Impaired Driving over .08 Causing Death

2. Impaired Driving Causing Death

3. Criminal Negligence Causing Death.

The female was taken before a Justice of the Peace and released on bail.  She is to appear at the Breton Provincial Court on February 8, 2017.

The success of this investigation is attributed to multiple units of the RCMP along with numerous civilian witnesses who provided key evidence. The RCMP would like to thank everyone who assisted with this investigation.
