A 23-year-old Winnipeg man was killed early Wednesday after a single-vehicle crash on Highway 1 about one kilometre east of Richer, Manitoba.
The vehicle was travelling westbound when it veered into the median ditch and rolled at around 5:30 a.m. A passenger seated in the rear of the vehicle and not wearing a seatbelt was ejected and pronounced deceased at the scene.
The driver and another passenger are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Alcohol and speed appear to be contributing factors in the crash.
Police are continuing to investigate.
