RCMP is seeking witnesses of a fatal collision that occurred on Sunday, July 10 shortly before 5 p.m in Rocky View County. 

Airdrie RCMP and Airdrie Fire Services were called to a collision involving a pickup truck and a hatchback on Highway 567 near Range Road 284. 

Police believe an adult male driver of an eastbound hatchback attempted to overtake a pickup truck pulling a travel trailer that was also traveling eastbound when the hatchback struck the back of the trailer.

The impact caused the hatchback to leave the road and collide with a power pole. The power pole caught on fire and spread to the hatchback which became fully engulfed. 

Sadly, a youth passenger who was in the back seat of the hatchback succumbed to his injuries at the scene. 

RCMP continues to investigate and is seeking eyewitnesses or anyone who may have dash cam footage to contact the Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7200 or your local detachment.
