Single-Vehicle Rollover Kills Man on Highway 7

Poor road conditions are being contributed to a fatal single-vehicle crash in Manitoba.

RCMP say at about 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, a 2009 Pontiac was travelling northbound on Highway 7 when it rolled at least once north of Teulon.

The 61-year-old male driver from the East Interlake area was pronounced deceased at the scene.

According to police, reduced visibility, blowing snow and the lack of seat belt use are considered factors in the crash.

The man’s name isn’t being released.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, while the passenger was transported to hospital in unstable condition. The driver of the pickup truck sustained minor injuries.

No name has been released.
