Police have released the name of a 23-year-old man who died in a car crash along Hwy 2, near Lacombe, on Monday.

Bulatem Bulgak, of Edmonton, died from injuries after being thrown from his vehicle.

Police said Bulgak was travelling southbound on Hwy 2 at an excessive rate of speed, when he lost control and rolled in the median. Police weren’t able to say his exact rate of speed.

Ponoka RCMP Const. Mark Green said the inside of the vehicle is designed to keep people alive as long as they have their seatbelt on and the interior of the vehicle was still intact after the rollover. “We believe that should he have been seatbelted he would have lived,” Green said.

The rollover occurred at around 2 p.m. on Monday.

The collision took place in the southbound lane from Ponoka, as he was getting to the six-lane. Bulgak entered the ditch prior to the guard rail at the start of the curve. The vehicle got caught on the guard rail and rolled.

The young man was found in the ditch beside the highway and was pronounced dead on the scene. No other vehicles were involved and no one else was injured in the incident.
