The Long weekend has been a deadly one on Alberta Highways.

Up until early Monday, 5 crashes had killed 6 people, including a crash near Peace River.

The truck and driver were not found for approximately three to five hours until 7:40 a.m., when a passing motorist came across the scene. Staff Sgt. John Haney of the Peace River RCMP detachment said the gravel road is not well travelled.

Police believe speed and alcohol were likely factors in the crash.
