Crash Near Boissevain Leaves One Man Dead

A two-vehicle crash on a rural Manitoba gravel road has left one person dead.

RCMP say two pickup trucks — a 1997 Ford and a 1994 Chevrolet — collided at an uncontrolled intersection at about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 2.

The crash happened three miles southeast of Boissevain, sending the Ford pickup to roll at least once. The driver, a 60-year-old Minnedosa man, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Police are considering seat belt use to be a factor in the fatality.

The driver of the Chevolet pickup, a 67-year-old Boissevain man, was not injured.

Alcohol has been ruled out as a contributing factor and road conditions at the time were reported to be in good condition.

No name has been released.
