Raymond police responded to a fatal collision, just north of Welling yesterday.
At approximately 12:30 p.m., Raymond RCMP officers were dispatched to what was described as a very-serious vehicle collision between a semi-tractor trailer and pickup truck on Highway 5, approximately two kilometres north of Welling. The pickup truck involved caught fire and the driver, the lone occupant, died in his vehicle, according to police.
Police added investigation indicated the semi and the pickup collided head-on and as a result, the pickup truck caught fire.
The highway remained closed in both directions, and traffic was being diverted until late yesterday afternoon.
