A man is dead and another in hospital following a crash on Highway 59, a little over three kilometres north of Scanterbury.
RCMP and EMS responded to the scene of the fatal crash on Highway 59 just before 5:30 p.m.
A photo of the scene shows a car, the front three quarters destroyed. The wreck of the car is unrecognizable, as it is flattened and twisted, and large parts of it are elsewhere on the road. Wreckage can be seen littering the highway for about 50 metres around the crash site.
RCMP said in a release the car was going southbound when it collided head-on with a north-bound lumber truck. The investigation indicated the driver of the car was attempting to pass on a solid line when the collision occurred. The 30-year-old driver of the car was pronounced dead on the scene, while the 39-year-old driver of the truck was brought to hospital in stable condition.
A witness said the car appears to have swerved and collided head-on with the truck.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the collision. The investigation is ongoing.
Scanterbury is about 70 kilometres north of Winnipeg.
