Man dies following motor collision in Penhold

Emergency officials say lack of seat belt may have played a role

  • Mar. 3, 2017 3:54 p.m.

On March 3rd at approximately 1:30 a.m., Innisfail RCMP along with Penhold Fire and EMS attended a fatal motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Hwy. 42 and Hwy. 2A in Penhold.

A van travelling westbound on Hwy. 42 failed to stop at the stop sign and T-boned a northbound car on Hwy. 2A. Both occupants of the car received minor injuries and were released at the scene.

The lone male of the van was deceased at the scene.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision. However, no seat belt use may have played a role in the fatality.

Innisfail RCMP along with the RCMP Traffic Analyst continue to investigate.

At this point no additional information will be release to the public as next of kin notification needs to be completed.
