Central Alberta RCMP are investigating two separate deaths on area highways.
The most recent occurred Wednesday evening near the city when a 17-year-old male from Red Deer was killed in a fatal collision.
The teen, who police have not yet identified, was ejected from the vehicle he was driving, a 2003 Ford Explorer, at about 10:30 p.m. after a single-vehicle rollover three kilometres west of Red Deer on Hwy 11.
Red Deer Rural RCMP said the vehicle had been travelling eastbound before it left the highway, entered the centre median and rolled.
The male was the only occupant of the vehicle. He died at the collision scene.
On Wednesday, RCMP announced that on April 4, police and Sundre and Caroline fire departments attended the scene of a vehicle on fire at about 5:15 a.m. along Range Road 50, about two kilometres south of Crammond Road.
They found the driver of the vehicle, Henry James Smith of the rural Innisfail area, deceased at the scene. Police did not release Smith’s age.
His vehicle, a 1986 Toyota pickup truck, was located partially in the east ditch with the front end of the vehicle burned.
Police do not believe the incident to be of a suspicious nature.
