Police in Rocky Mountain House have laid charges against a Rocky man in connection with a fatal collision on Hwy 11 in October.
Dylan Redcalf, 20, died in hospital of injuries he suffered during a vehicle collision 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 Mountain House when a pickup truck struck it from behind.
Jacob Cable, 26, has been charged with one count of dangerous driving causing death and five counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
Released on an undertaking, he was subsequently arrested by Innisfail RCMP making a traffic stop and charged with breaching conditions of his release.
Cable pleaded guilty to the new charges in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday and was sentenced to the five days he served in the Red Deer Remand Centre awaiting his court appearance.
He returns to court in Rocky Mountain House on Dec. 19 to answer the dangerous driving charges.
