The crash happened at around 1:20 p.m. on Provincial Road 244 North, approximately 8 km north of Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba.
RCMP say a southbound car crossed into the northbound lane and collided with a northbound SUV. The southbound car ended up in the east ditch, sending its driver to hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.
The 33-year-old RM of Norfolk Treherne woman driving the SUV was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
