A Lac Ste. Anne firefighter has been identified as the man killed in a two-vehicle crash near Barrhead on Friday.
Chief Randy Schroeder said Joshua Pare-White, 24, was from Edmonton, but had been a member of Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services since 2014.
In a Facebook post on the Lac Ste. Anne County page, Pare-White is described as “one of the many rising stars” in the service and as “a young and energetic soul who will be sorely missed by his fire family.”
In a news release Saturday, RCMP said officers responded to a collision on Highway 33 and Township Road 574 at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
The 24-year-old Edmonton man driving the car was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man driving the truck was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, RCMP said.
Calvin Carrier, of Calmar, Alta., has been charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
The 30-year-old is scheduled to appear in Barrhead Provincial Court on July 17.
