Just before 3 a.m., a Mercedes E320 was travelling northbound on Rabbit Hill Road approaching MacTaggart Drive when the driver lost control and struck a light pole, Edmonton police said in a morning news release.

The rear passenger, a 20-year-old man, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead by emergency crews on scene. A 19-year-old man, the driver of the vehicle, and a 21-year-old male front passenger were transported to hospital for precautionary reasons.

Investigators believe speed was a factor in the fatal collision and alcohol may have also been involved as the major collision unit continues to investigate.
