This morning at approximately 10:00 a.m., Coronation RCMP responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 12 in the County of Paintearth.
Preliminary investigation has revealed a truck heading southbound on Range Road 131 proceeded from a controlled intersection at Highway 12 and collided with an eastbound semi-tractor.
Tragically, the 77-year-old lone male occupant of the truck from Castor, Alberta was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the semi-tractor was not injured.
Coronation RCMP and an RCMP Collision Analyst attended the scene and continue to investigate. No further updates are anticipated.
Our thoughts are with the family of the deceased at this time and his name will not be released.
