Man in truck dies trying to pass vehicle

  • Print

A 66-year-old man from Rock Lake was killed in a two-vehicle collision on Wednesday after he tried to pass another vehicle.

An investigation by Killarney RCMP found the man was driving a pickup truck behind a gravel truck northbound on Government Road, about 2 1/2 kilometres south of Baldur about 4:45 p.m. when the gravel truck slowed down to make a right turn.

The man driving the pickup truck tried to pass the gravel truck on the right when his vehicle struck the truck and rolled.

The man died at the scene. His passenger, a 65-year-old man from the RM of Argyle, was taken to hospital in Winnipeg where he is in stable condition.

The 71-year-old male gravel truck driver, also from the RM of Argyle, was not injured in the collision.

Alcohol is not considered to be a factor in the collision and it is not known at this time if seatbelts were being worn.

The investigation is continuing with the assistance of an RCMP forensic collision reconstructionist.

The name of the deceased man is not being released.
