Charges laid in two-truck rollover

A man was handed two drunk driving charges for his involvement in a double rollover on Friday

Police say a 28-year-old Alberta man was released with a promise to appear on drunk driving charges after a Friday afternoon crash on Highway 97 left his and another truck upside down in a ditch.

The crash involved a 1999 Ford F-150 and a 2001 Ford pickup, though it’s not clear which vehicle the man, from Sherwood Park in the Edmonton area, was driving.

While it is still unknown how the crash occurred, the man reportedly struck a truck driven by a woman from Calgary, leading to both vehicles rolling over into the ditch near Sage Mesa Drive.

RCMP did not know if there were any serious injuries sustained from the crash.
