A man is believed to have suffered a diabetic shock shortly before his truck left the highway on Monday morning.

The man was driving southbound along Highway 43 between Line Creek turn off and Sparwood, at about 7 a.m. when his truck left the road and ended up in the ditch, smashing into a tree.

The RCMP said they originally believed it was an impaired driving incident, but now believe the collision was related to the man’s diabetes.
