Golden Field RCMP

Last night around 9 p.m., a pick up truck struck a pedestrian on Highway 96, south of Golden.

As the driver of the pick up truck was travelling north-bound on Highway 95 near Day Rd., the truck collided with a pedestrian that was standing in the middle of the road.

The pedestrian has been identified at a 60-year-old local male. No name has been released, and his next of kin have been notified.

A collision reconstructionist was on scene last night to conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the collision, and the highway was closed for some time for emergency vehicles to respond and for the investigation to be completed.
