A 35-year-old woman from Shoal River First Nation was killed early Sunday when she exited a moving vehicle on Highway 10 just south of Mafeking, Manitoba.
RCMP say the pickup truck was being driven by a 46-year-old Birch River man at around 3:20 a.m. when the female passenger exited the southbound vehicle. She was struck by the trailer being towed by the pickup and pronounced deceased.
Alcohol is a factor in the collision.
The driver faces impaired driving charges and remains in custody.
