RCMP are investigating after a man was killed early Saturday morning near Calgary after losing control of his car.

The accident happened around 3 a.m. MT just west of Bearspaw Road. Police say a car was travelling westbound on Burma Road when the driver lost control, went off the road and crashed through several fences.

The driver, a man believed to be in his 40s, was the only person in the car and was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.

Speed is believed to have been a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to contact Cochrane RCMP.
