A man was killed and two others injured when a driver near a Minnedosa music event hit three pedestrians early Monday.
Minnedosa RCMP said in a release they received a call shortly before 3 a.m. about a serious collision between a car and three pedestrians close to the entrance to the Rockin' the Fields of Minnedosa festival.
RCMP said a southbound vehicle on Provincial Road 262 near Road 85 North hit Shawn Cooper, 25, and a woman, 23, both from Minnedosa, before hitting a 44-year-old Winnipeg man a short time later.
The Minnedosa pair was walking on the shoulder of the highway.
Cooper was taken to Minnedosa Health Centre where he died from his injuries. The 23-year-old woman was treated in hospital and released. The 44-year-old was treated at the scene of the incident.
A 37-year-old suspect is in RCMP custody but no charges have been laid.
Alcohol is considered to be a factor in the collision. RCMP are investigating.
