Crash leaves man in critical condition

An early-morning single-vehicle rollover last Saturday sent an 18-year-old Stettler man, Lane Turigan, to a Calgary hospital

An early-morning single-vehicle rollover last Saturday sent an 18-year-old Stettler man, Lane Turigan, to a Calgary hospital in critical condition.

Stettler RCMP reported that Turigan, the driver of the pickup truck, wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.

Three passengers received non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The rollover occurred just west of the intersection of Highway 11 and Highway 12, about 21 kilometres west of Stettler.

Turigan was operating the four-door 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 that left the road, RCMP said in a news release.

A police investigation identified that alcohol was not involved, but speed and heavy fog at the time of the rollover were considered factors.

Stettler RCMP, Stettler Regional Fire Department and Stettler EMS responded to the 911 call at 2:24 a.m. Saturday.

Turigan was taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital by ambulance. STARS wasn’t available because of heavy fog over central Alberta, police said.

The passengers — a 21-year-old woman, a 26-year-old man and a 31-year-old man — were all taken to the Stettler hospital.

Turigan was later transferred to a Calgary hospital, where family members are at his side.

A spokesman for the family said Tuesday morning that they would release an update on Turigan’s condition later this week.
