On September 3, 2014 at approximately 3:30 a.m. Lethbridge RCMP along with RCMP Collision Analyst, RCMP Police Dog Service, EMS and Fire services attended a single vehicle rollover on Hwy 4. A pickup truck driven by a 19 year old male driver had lost control, the truck rolled and the driver was ejected from the vehicle and receiving serious injuries.
He was transported by ground ambulance to the Lethbridge Regional Hospital and then to Foothills Hospital in Calgary where he succumbed to his injuries later in the evening. The highway was shut down for a number of hours while police investigated the scene. The collision is still under investigation, but alcohol is believed to be a factor.
