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.

The victim was identified as Paul Gabriel Bertin, an 18-year-old who had recently moved to Red Deer from Botha, which is about 10 minutes east of Stettler.

RCMP believe Bertin was struck by a westbound vehicle while walking across the bridge.

Cameron is charged with failing to stop at the scene of a collision and with mischief.

Along with the cash bail, Cameron’s release conditions include a curfew and he has been prohibited from driving except to work and back.

He returns to court on Nov. 23 to enter a plea.
