Man in hospital after accident near Grande Prairie


A 26 year-old man is in an Edmonton Hospital after being found at the side of a road near Dimsdale, Alta.

Grande Prairie RCMP say they were called to a single vehicle accident on Range Road 73 on Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. They found a driver of a Dodge Ram truck lying near some downed wires in a ditch.

ATCO Electric was called to turn off the power to the area so emergency vehicles could get the man out of the ditch.

He was taken by ambulance to Grande Prairie but was later transferred by STARS air ambulance to Edmonton.

He is currently in stable condition.

Police are still investigating the incident but say they believe the truck was heading south on the road before it rolled into the ditch. They also say they believe the man was either thrown from the truck when it rolled or left the truck and tried to get around the downed power lines.
