A man accused of drunk driving in relation to the death of a Rocky Mountain House man will make his first court appearance in Whitecourt on Tuesday.

Whitecourt RCMP have said that Clinton Lattery, 27, died when the welding truck in which he was riding struck the back end of a logging truck at about 8 p.m. on Nov. 14.

They allege that Brooks resident Ryan Douglas Florence, 30, was driving the smaller vehicle. Florence was arrested and charged with three offences, including impaired driving causing death.

A police statement issued shortly after his arrest stated that Florence was not injured in the collision.
