A deadly highway collision involving a pedestrian is under investigation northeast of Edmonton.
Lac La Biche RCMP say it took place early in the morning last Thursday, on Highway 36, just south of the hamlet.
Officers arrived to find a northbound truck — being driven by a 16-year-old boy — had struck a pedestrian whose vehicle was later found in the area.
The 38-year-old man from Lac La Biche died at the scene, with the Mounties saying his name will not be released.
There’s no word if charges are being considered against the teenage boy who was driving the truck. (td)
