RCMP Crest LogoA 54-year-old Manitoba man has died after apparently walking away from his vehicle when it hit the ditch.

RCMP say the man was found unconscious at around 6:30 a.m. on Monday on Road 45N, just off Provincial Road 210 about four kilometres west of Landmark. Resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful after the man was located about 50 metres from his vehicle.

An autopsy will be completed in Winnipeg, but police don’t suspect foul play.

Poor visibility and road conditions were reported in the area, police say.

The man’s name isn’t being released.
