A fa­tal ve­hi­cle col­li­sion in­volv­ing a sus­pect in a stolen ve­hi­cle and a com­plainant fol­low­ing him is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the South­ern Al­berta RCMP Ma­jor Crime Unit and Three Hills RCMP.

On Sun­day, Au­gust 14 at 11:30 pm RCMP were alerted to a sus­pi­cious Dodge Dakota near Del­burne. The ve­hi­cle was driven onto a ru­ral prop­erty where it be­came stuck, and the driver then took a Ford F150 from the prop­erty.

The com­plainant who ini­tially alerted RCMP fol­lowed both stolen ve­hi­cles from the Del­burne area to High­way 42 and Range Road 240, near Pine Like, where the two ve­hi­cles col­lided, fa­tally in­jur- ing the driver of the stolen Ford af­ter the ve­hi­cle rolled over. He was trans­ported by STARS Air Am­bu­lance to a hospi­tal in Cal­gary where he suc­cumbed to his in­juries and was pro­nounced dead. The com­plainant was not in­jured.

The RCMP Col­li­sion An­a­lyst at­tended the col­li­sion and is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the cause, with South­ern Al­berta RCMP Ma­jor Crimes Unit main­tain­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion with the help of Three Hills RCMP.

A press re­lease states the in­ci­dent is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion and there will be no fur­ther in­for­ma­tion made avail­able.

Of­fi­cials re­quest those with in­for­ma­tion about the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to con­tact Three Hills RCMP or their lo­cal de­tach­ment.
