Two men were killed Sunday night when the minivan they were in drove into some trees northwest of Grandview, Manitoba.
RCMP say the single-vehicle crash happened at around 8 p.m. on Road 153 West when the westbound vehicle went off the road.
The 22-year-old man driving the van was pronounced deceased at the scene, while his 48-year-old male passenger succumbed to his injuries in hospital.
Both men were from the Valley River First Nation.
Police say the driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, but the passenger was buckled up.
It’s unclear if alcohol was a factor in the collision.
The investigation is ongoing.
