Fatal Alberta Peace logging truck rollover

In the Alberta Peace, the Fairview RCMP has confirmed that a single vehicle rollover has resulted in the death of a 43 year-old Hines Creek man.


A motorist, who did not witness the crash, but unsuccessfully tried to free the driver, reported the logging truck rollover about 5:45 this morning.

The unidentified driver was trapped after his truck crossed the centre line of Highway 64, about three kilometres north of the junction with Highway 64-A, and rolled in a ditch.

He was eventually freed by the Fairview fire department, but he was pronounced dead upon his arrival at Fairview hospital.

The case is still under police investigation, but speed, alcohol, highway and environmental conditions are not believed to have been crash factors.
