A dump truck driver from Oak Lake has been charged after a failure to stop at a stop sign resulted in a fatal collision.
Portage la Prairie RCMP said on Wednesday a 74-year-old man from the RM of Portage la Prairie was pronounced dead on Tuesday at about 10:25 a.m., near the intersection of Road 68 North and Road 38 West.
RCMP said the victim was driving a pickup truck south when he collided with a westbound dump truck that didn't stop at the stop sign.
The pickup truck rolled and landed on its roof in a ditch.
A 50-year-old dump truck driver has been charged with criminal negligence causing death and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
RCMP said alcohol was not a factor in the collision, but the intersection was snow-packed and ice-covered.
