The investigation to date has revealed that the male, who was driving a 2009 GMC pickup truck, failed to negotiate a slight curve in the roadway and rolled several times coming to rest in the centre median of the westbound and eastbound lanes.

No other persons or vehicles were involved in this occurrence.

Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the collision and RCMP continue to investigate.

No further information will be released by RCMP at this time.
