One 19 year old male from Pincher Creek was pronounced deceased on scene.  According to Pincher Creek RCMP he was believed to be the driver of the Dodge pickup truck that lost control on the road and rolled several times. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time and was ejected from the vehicle.
