An 24-year-old ATV rider is dead after running into a pick-up truck on a highway in northern Alberta.

Police were called to the scene at 11:35 a.m. Sunday on Secondary Highway #813 about 30 kilometres north of Athabasca, or 180 kilometres north of Edmonton.

Police said the man was driving in the ditch when he turned abruptly without looking to cross the highway.

He drove into the side of pickup truck and was thrown from the quad.

He suffered serious head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

No charges will be laid, said police.     

It's the second ATV death in the province in the last week.

A 42-year-old woman from Rimbey, Alta., was killed when the quad she was on rolled last Sunday.
