One man was killed after being hit by a vehicle west of Okotoks, Alta., on Wednesday.

RCMP said it happened on Big Rock Trail about 1.5 kilometres west of the town at around 10 p.m.

RCMP said the pedestrian, a 51-year-old man, was dead when officers arrived on scene.

On Friday, RCMP said a 1998 Toyota Corolla was travelling west when it struck the pedestrian, rolled and landed on its roof.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Police said a preliminary investigation suggests alcohol wasn’t a factor. It’s unknown if speed may have been. No charges have been laid.

Although they aren’t seeking any suspects, RCMP are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to call Okotoks RCMP at 403-995-6400.
