The preliminary police investigation revealed that the unidentified driver of the sled was ‘high marking’ with friends. The sled was descending from the hill, hit a rock, and the driver was thrown off the machine.

The 64 year-old man fell against a rock, and sustained internal injuries. He was transported to the MacKenzie Hospital, but succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

Police say alcohol was not a factor in the incident.
