Rocky Mountain House RCMP have released the name of the young man who was killed in a crash Hwy 11 west of the town early Saturday morning.

Dylan Jay Redcalf, 20, died in a Calgary hospital following the two-vehicle crash shortly after midnight on Saturday, about 11 km west of Rocky.

Rocky RCMP say a pickup truck struck the rear of a car that had stopped on the shoulder. There were six people in the car and the driver of the pickup was alone.

The Jaws of Life had to be used to remove two of the six people from the car. Injuries ranged from minor to serious, with victims taken to hospitals in Rocky, Red Deer and Calgary.

Police continue to investigate, said Const. Tom Meloche.

Meloche said that Redcalf recently returned to the Rocky area to live after being in Sylvan Lake for a while.

An obituary in Tuesday’s Advocate shows how Dylan was close to his family.

He was an active member of the Aboriginal Resource Centre, encouraging his culture and working on continuing education. He was also described as a strong family person.

A wake will be held at the Native Friendship Centre in Rocky today.
