One man has died following a collision in Sturgeon County last week.

On Wednesday, July 24, just before 3:30 p.m. a car and semi truck collided on Highway 44, killing the driver of the car, approximately two kilometres south of Riviere Qui Barre.

The car was travelling northbound on Highway 44 and collided with the southbound semi. The 36-year-old male drive and lone occupant of the car was declared dead on scene.

The 34-year-old male driver of the semi truck suffered minor injuries. The semi was hauling lumber at the time.

Traffic was diverted until late in the evening Wednesday while the RCMP examined the scene. A collision analyst conducted the investigation of the scene. The investigation into the cause of the collision remains underway.

The RCMP say no further updates or information will be provided.
