EDMONTON — Leduc RCMP released another piece of the puzzle Tuesday relating to a fatal collision on the QE2 last week.

In the early hours of Monday, Oct. 6, Cameron LeClair of Edmonton was involved in a crash about 20 kilometres south of Leduc. Officers arrived around 6 a.m. to find extensive front-end damage on the 29-year-old’s Civic. There was no other vehicle at the scene.

According to RCMP, the damage is consistent with an Arne’s gravel trailer with a red frame, similar to the one pictured below. An Arne’s mud flap was also found at the scene.

Police believe the driver of the trailer may not have noticed the vehicle had been hit.

The LeClair family turned to Kiji last week, with a plea for help finding the vehicle involved in the crash.

“To [lose] a son in any way is [unbearable], but not knowing is making this worse,” Cameron’s father, Calvin LeClair wrote.

His son was taken to the University of Alberta hospital with serious injuries following the crash. He died a short time later.

Cpl. Alex DaSilva said last week RCMP had no witnesses and had received very few tips.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Leduc RCMP (780-980-7200) or Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-TIPS).
