Police are investigating the cause of a rollover that resulted in the death of a 25-year-old Rimbey woman.

The incident occurred on Highway 53 on Sunday, Nov. 1 just west of the 46 Street intersection. A 24-year-old male driver of a white Ford F250 is said to have lost control of the eastbound pickup, which rolled into the south side of the road several times before coming to a rest on its wheels.

A 25-year-old Rimbey woman was ejected from the vehicle and emergency crews were seen conducting CPR on her, however, police said she died at the scene.

The relationship of the two people is unknown. Investigation into incident is ongoing.

This was the second incident crews attended on that morning as there was another rollover about 45 minutes prior at the Highway 2 and Highway 53 cloverleaf.

Attempted theft of side by side

The attempted theft of a side by side ATV twice on the same day of Oct. 28 at a rural residence has police looking for suspects.

Officers say a suspect is believed to have attempted to steal the ATV with the wrong keys early on Oct. 28. The attempt failed but later on the same day at approximately 11:40 p.m. the suspects returned. It was an alarm that alerted the homeowner of someone being in their barn.

The caller said they saw an individual running out of the barn with the owner’s dog giving chase. The suspect then called for the owner to call their dog off, which subsequently chased the man into a nearby field. RCMP and the K-9 unit attended where they tracked the footprints to Maskwacis.

Police say they are looking for a First Nations man believed to be under 20 years of age. RCMP advises taking necessary precautions to lock up their outbuildings.

Suspended driver nabbed by traffic unit

Members of the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit nabbed a speeder Oct. 27 at 8:15 p.m. who was found to have a suspended licence.

Officers were conducting speed check when they witnessed a vehicle travelling at speeds of 137 km/h. The vehicle is said to have been weaving in and out of lanes. The vehicle was stopped and the 42-year-old Edmonton driver was charged with driving while unauthorized, exceeding the maximum speed limit and failing to maintain the centre lane.

Aggressive dogs in town

Police are investigating complaints of overly aggressive dogs that are said to have attacked a woman and her dog as well as trapped an individual in their car.

The incident occurred Monday, Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. When police arrived at the scene of the person trapped in their car, the dogs eventually returned to their yard.
