Medicine Hat resident dies after single vehicle collision near Elkwater

Posted on August 24, 2017 by 40 Mile Commentator

Redcliff RCMP were called out to a single-vehicle collision five kilometres south of Elkwater at 6:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
The 46-year-old male driver was towing a  horse trailer with a Ford F-350 and failed to negotiate a curb along Highway 41.
The Medicine Hat resident was deceased. The reason why the accident occurred is still under investigation.
RCMP wish to remind motorists that use of a smart-phone by a driver is considered distracted driving.  During the investigation, the driver of a vehicle coming through the scene was witnessed by police to be taking photographs.  This driver was ticketed by members.  It is illegal, unsafe and disrespectful when driving through a collision scene to be taking photographs of a scene under investigation.
