Three Hills RCMP were alerted to a suspicious Dodge Dakota in the area of Delburne on Aug. 14 at 11:30 p.m. The Dodge Dakota was driven onto a rural property where it became stuck and the driver then took a Ford F150 from the property. This Ford was later involved in a serious collision in Innisfail RCMP Detachment’s jurisdiction.
The complainant in this occurrence was following the suspicious Dodge, and then continued following the Ford F150. The truck was followed from the Delburne area to Highway 42 and Range Road 341 where the two vehicles collided.
The Ford F150 consequently was involved in a rollover and the 32-year-old male driver (lone occupant) was seriously injured. He was transported via STARS Air Ambulance to a hospital in Calgary where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased.
The RCMP Collision Analyst attended the collision location to investigate the cause.
