The Calgary man who is facing a number of charges in connection to a fatal crash on the Queen Elizabeth II Highway in March has pleaded guilty to four of the charges.
Tyler James Stevens has pleaded guilty to four counts of criminal negligence causing death.
The charges were laid after a massive crash on the QEII Highway near Innisfail on March 5 left four people dead.
According to investigators, an SUV travelling southbound on the highway collided head-on with another SUV, which was travelling north in the southbound lanes.
Four people in the southbound vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene – two 35-year-old men, and two women, aged 52 and 39.
CTV News learned later that the four victims were temporary foreign workers from the Philippines, who were working at the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel.
Stevens is also facing a number of other charges, which will be dealt with at his sentencing on January 4 in a Red Deer courtroom.
