A 30-year-old man from Brooks is facing a number of charges, including impaired driving causing death in a crash earlier this week.

A welding truck drove into the back of a loaded logging truck 8 p.m. Wednesday, just west of Whitecourt, said RCMP.

A passenger in the truck, Clinton Lattery, 27, of Rocky Mountain House, died at the scene. The driver, who was not hurt, was arrested.
