A Sundre man has died of injuries after his pickup truck rolled on the Trans-Canada Highway, west of Cochrane, just before midnight on Wednesday.

Cochrane RCMP said emergency crews were called to the westbound lanes near Scott Lake Hill, where witnesses reported seeing a pickup truck overturned and a man lying on the road.

A STARS air ambulance was called out, but could not land because of heavy fog, said RCMP Sgt. Audrey Robinson.

The 31-year-old man was taken by ground ambulance to a hospital in Calgary, where he later died, said Robinson.

He was alone in the vehicle, she said. Police do not plan to release his name.

Located in the Morley First Nation, Scott Lake Hill is one of the highest points on the Trans-Canada Hwy.
