Alberta RCMP Investigates Fatal Single Vehicle Crash in Sturgeon County – Edmonton | The Canadian News

A 42-year-old St. Albert man died, according to the Morinville RCMP, after the car he was driving collided with a support column for a train bridge on Highway 633 on Friday.

In a press release, the RCMP said officers were called in to respond to the accident near Range Road 263 around 5:40 p.m.

As investigators continue to investigate what happened, the RCMP late Friday said a preliminary investigation suggests the car was heading west on Highway 633 before crashing and catching fire.

“Bystanders saw the collision and were able to get the driver out of the vehicle and provide first aid,” police said. However, paramedics pronounced the man dead when they arrived. No one else was in the vehicle.

Police asked drivers to avoid the area as they are diverting traffic away from the scene of the accident until an investigation is completed.
