RCMP said no police vehicles pursued the stolen vehicle but the Edmonton Police Service Air One helicopter maintained observation of the vehicle as it “drove erratically and at high speeds” heading east on Highway 16.
RCMP said the vehicle continued to move with deflated tires and rolled three minutes later onto Range Road 215.
Officers immediately attended to the rolled-over vehicle and discovered the adult driver had been ejected from the truck.
Responding officers provided first aid and contacted EMS and STARS air ambulance but the man died at the scene as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash.
An investigation into the circumstances leading up to the collision is underway.
