One person is dead and five others suffered non-life threatening injuries following a Saturday night pickup truck rollover that RCMP believe was the result of a combination of speed and alcohol.
According to members of the Pincher Creek RCMP department, officers were called to a location near Cameron Lake in Waterton National Park at around 9:00 p.m. after a passenger called 911 reporting the crash.
A pickup truck was travelling southbound on Cameron Lake Road when it left the road and rolled down an embankment into a creek bed. The driver of the pickup truck was thrown from the vehicle and suffered fatal injuries.
The five passengers in the truck were able to exit the vehicle and call for help. Their injuries are considered non-life threatening.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The identity of the deceased has not been released but RCMP confirm the driver and passengers were from the Cardston area.
Alcohol and speed are believed to have contributed to the crash. RCMP continue to investigate the crash. Cameron Lake Road will remain closed to traffic throughout the investigation.
