Man accused in fatality appears in court
A man accused of drunk driving in relation to the death of a Rocky Mountain House man appeared in Whitecourt provincial court on Tuesday.
Whitecourt RCMP previously said that Clinton Lattery, 27, died when the welding truck in which he was riding struck the back end of a logging truck at about 8 p.m. on Nov. 14.
Police allege that Brooks resident Ryan Douglas Florence, 30, was driving the smaller vehicle.
Florence was arrested and charged with three offences, including impaired driving causing death.
A police statement issued shortly after his arrest stated that Florence was not injured in the collision.
Florence returns to court in Whitecourt on Dec. 11 for election and plea.
