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.
