Proceedings against a man accused of killing four people and injuring one in a highway collision have been adjourned to June 11.

Charges including impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, criminal negligence while operating a motor vehicle and failing to provide a breath sample were laid on March 4 after a collision on Hwy 2 between Bowden and Innisfail.

Police with the Hwy 2 Integrated Traffic Unit based in Innisfail allege that an SUV was headed north in the southbound lane when it struck a southbound SUV carrying five passengers, who were later confirmed to be temporary residents employed in an Edmonton hotel.

Cochrane resident Tyler James Stevens, 29, was to enter a plea in Red Deer provincial court on Monday.

However, a Red Deer lawyer acting as agent for Stevens’s counsel asked that the matter be set over to June 11. Stevens was not present.
