Teen dies from injuries in ATV crash

A 19-year-old man has died from his injuries after he and another male crashed their ATV into a car in Flin Flon on August 3.

The driver of the car, a 54-year-old female, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital. Her passenger, 58, was not injured.

Flin Flon RCMP previously stated in a release they were dispatched just before 11:30 p.m. on August 3 to Main Street and Third Avenue in Flin Flon for the collision. The investigation showed the two men on the ATV, a 17-year-old male and a 19-year-old male, were travelling northbound on Main Street when they hit the car. Both men were transported to hospital with serious injuries. The 19-year-old has since died. His name will not be released.

Alcohol has not been ruled out as a factor. RCMP stated both men on the ATV were not wearing helmets. The investigation is ongoing.
