One man is dead following a single-vehicle rollover just after midnight last night.
At approximately 12:30 a.m., Prairie Mountain RCMP responded to a crash on Highway 45, near the western Manitoba town of Russell. Attending officers discovered an eastbound minivan drove off the highway and struck an approach, eventually flipping on its roof.
A 36-year-old man from Elphinstone was extracted from the van and taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. His name will not be released.
The man was wearing a seatbelt. Alcohol was not a factor.
RCMP also point out this accident was not a result of any flood-related issues in the area.
The investigation continues.
