Police are urging motorists to drive carefully and remember to fasten their seatbelts before getting behind the wheel this summer season, after the death of another driver on Alberta highways.

On Tuesday evening, Peace River RCMP raced to the scene of a collision on Highway 688, where the driver of a pump truck was thrown from his vehicle when it veered off the pavement and rolled.

The driver, 50-year-old Edward Beaver of Nova Scotia, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing his seatbelt.

Over the long weekend, Alberta Sheriffs nabbed 2800 unsafe drivers, 58 of whom were not wearing seatbelts. There are currently 99 traffic sheriffs on our highways, and that number will be increased to 105 in June.
