An oilfield worker facing charges in connection with a fatal collision in Red Deer on Oct. 6 has been released from custody on a recognizance including a cash deposit of $2,000.

Brent Robert Cameron, 24, was arrested and charged following the discovery of a body on the Taylor Bridge shortly after 2 a.m.
