WINNIPEG — A young man critically injured in a car crash this morning has died.

Winnipeg police said the 28-year-old man died from injuries he received after the late-model Malibu crashed shortly after 4 a.m. on Route 90 near St. Matthews Avenue.

The crash occurred after the vehicle fled a traffic stop on Kenaston Boulevard near Academy Road.

Const Jacqueline Chaput said the female driver drove off as the officer approached the car, adding it's not known why the driver fled.

The 24-year-old woman who was driving the car is in hospital in stable condition.

Chaput said the intersection of Route 90 and St. Matthews remains closed for the investigation.

"It's clear at this point that there was excessive speed and speed was a factor," in the crash, Chaput said, adding the car rolled several times before it came to a stop on its roof.

Chaput said she could not confirm that the vehicle was being chased by police before the driver lost control.

Police have not released the dead man's name.

If you witnessed the crash or know the people involved, please email or phone 697-7292.
