At approximately 1 a.m. on July 5th, Didsbury RCMP responded to a collision on Hwy. 2 involving a mini-van and a semi truck-trailer.
At the time of the collision, the semi was pulled over on the shoulder of the northbound lanes with its hazard lights activated.
A Dodge caravan that was also travelling northbound struck the rear of the trailer. The driver, and lone occupant of the mini-van, a 59-year old man from Red Deer was pronounced dead at the scene.
An RCMP collision re-constructionist attended the scene as part of the investigation.
No charges are anticipated. Traffic was diverted for a period of time but has since resumed normal flow.
