A preliminary hearing date has been set for a Rocky Mountain House man charged in connection with a fatality on Hwy 11 last October.

Jacob Cable, 26, will head to a preliminary hearing on Nov. 19 in Rocky Mountain House on charges of one count of dangerous driving causing death and five counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

Dylan Redcalf, 20, died in hospital of injuries he suffered during a crash shortly after midnight on Oct. 13.

RCMP allege that Redcalf and five others were seated in a vehicle that had stopped at the side of the highway about 11 km west of Rocky when a pickup truck struck it from behind.

Jaws of Life had to be used to remove two of the six people from the car. Injuries ranged from minor to serious, with victims taken to hospitals in Rocky, Red Deer and Calgary.

Hwy 11 was closed for four hours while emergency crews worked at the scene.
