The second man involved in the altercation remained on scene and was arrested without incident.

“Our investigators remain focussed on piecing the sequence of events together, as they consider who is believed to be the primary aggressor in this incident,” Cpl. Jesse O’Konaghey said.

RCMP say initial findings suggest the fight stemmed from a roadway dispute that escalated to the point both drivers got out of their vehicles and became violent.
