Canmore, Alberta – On September 9, 2020 at approximately 9:45 p.m. Canmore RCMP members were made aware of a collision on Highway 1 eastbound near Deadman’s Flats. A 53 year old male had been located in the ditch near his tractor-trailer unit, which was parked on the shoulder on Highway 1. Investigation revealed that the male had been out checking on his trailer when he was struck by another eastbound tractor-trailer unit, causing him to be thrown into the ditch. The male subject was transported to hospital and was treated for fairly minor injuries and released shortly afterwards.

The truck involved in the collision is described as black and grey in color, and was transporting a sea-can on the trailer. It is possible that the driver of this unit did not realize they had struck the male on the highway.
