RCMP in Fairview say the truck reportedly rolled, throwing the young man from the vehicle; it’s believed he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.
The 17-year-old driver and a 15-year-old passenger, both wearing seatbelts, received only minor injuries.
Indications from the scene were the truck was ‘experiencing a mechanical problem’ moments before the accident.
The name of the person killed is not expected to be released.
Alcohol and road conditions have been ruled out as factors in the crash.
