Driver charged with impaired driving causing death

  • Print

A Winnipeg man is dead following a single-vehicle rollover just north of the city Saturday morning.

About 4 a.m., Selkirk and East St. Paul RCMP and emergency personnel responded to a crash in the 3700 block of Henderson Highway. Upon arrival, crews found a car in the east ditch.

One passenger, a 20-year-old man, died in the accident. His name will not be released. The RCMP indicate he was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

The driver and a second passenger, a female, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol is considered a factor in the crash.

The driver, a 19-year-old woman from Winnipeg, was released from hospital and taken into police custody. She faces charges of impaired driving causing death and refusal to provide breath samples.

Early investigation shows the driver was heading north on Henderson Highway when she lost control of the car and it rolled into the ditch.

The section of Henderson Highway was closed to traffic for a number of hours early Saturday morning, but was reopened before 9 a.m.
