A 17-year-old boy faces charges after an ATV rollover early Saturday morning at the Gaming Centre at the Keeseekoowenin First Nation.

Yellowhead RCMP and area emergency medical services were called about 3:15 a.m. regarding the rollover.

Emergency crews found a 17-year-old male rider, who was operating the ATV, with minor non-life threatening injuries. An 18-year-old female passenger was found unconscious.

Both were taken to Shoal Lake hospital. The woman has been transferred to a Winnipeg hospital for undetermined injuries.

The investigation continues with the assistance of a traffic analyst.

The 17-year-old rider faces charges under the Off Road Vehicle Act.

Alcohol is believed to have played a role in the rollover and additional charges may be pending.
