A Stettler man is dead following single-vehicle crash May 15 morning near Morinville, north of Edmonton.
RCMP say Craig Atterbury, 21, of Stettler, and Jason Johnson, 26, of Edmonton, died in a vehicle rollover around 6 a.m. on Range Road 235, east of Bon Accord and south of Highway 28.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Mac Richards said the Morinville detachment was notified of the crash by a resident who lives near the scene. When emergency staff responded, both men were found dead, ejected from a 2006 Acura that had rolled off the road and come to rest on its side.
Richards said Morinville RCMP are still doing follow-up investigations and were waiting for the medical examiner’s report. He has not been given a traffic analyst’s report, which would determine the car’s approximate speed and whether the men were wearing seat belts.
Richards said the gravel road had a posted speed limit of 80 km/h.
