On Thursday March 29, at approximately 8:02PM Drumheller RCMP responded to a two vehicle collision 5 kilometers east of Morrin on Highway 9.
"We had a passenger vehicle, a car, drift into the opposing lane, the westbound lane and had a head on collision with a tanker. We are not sure of the circumstances yet as to why the vehicle would go across like that; but there was a lone male occupant to the vehicle that was deceased on scene," explained Corporal Steven Lloyd of the Drumheller RCMP.
The driver of the tanker truck did not suffer any injuries, but there was extensive damage to the truck.
The investigation is still underway, but there is no indication that any charges will be laid. The driver of the car has not yet been identified.
