The crash happened shortly after 2:30 a.m. about six kilometres south of The Pas.
The Opaskwayak Cree Nation woman driving the vehicle was taken to hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Four passengers in the van were treated in hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Police continue to investigate.
