Police allege the man then got into a Ford pick-up truck and plowed through a small group of people gathered outside the bar.

Nicholas Baier, 18, of Olds, Alta., was killed. One other person was seriously injured and two other treated in hospital for minor injuries.

Jeffrey Kevin Leinen, 24, of Calgary, is facing numerous charges, including first-degree murder and impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

Leinen is in police custody and is scheduled to appear in Calgary Provincial Court on Monday morning.

Olds is located about 80 kilometres north of Calgary.
