Selkirk Man Dies Following Rollover on Highway 59

RCMP Logo VehicleOne person has died following a crash on June 29 which sent a pickup truck into a water-filled ditch on Highway 59.

The vehicle was travelling southbound at around 5:40 p.m. when it lost control and landed upside down in the west ditch approximately one kilometre north of Scanterbury, Manitoba.

RCMP say the cab of the truck was completely submerged.

A 35-year-old man from Hollow Water was able to exit the vehicle, but a 41-year-old Selkirk man needed to be pulled out by passersby. Both men were taken to hospital in Winnipeg, where the 35-year-old was treated and released. The Selkirk man remained in critical condition and succumbed to his injuries on July 8.

Police say alcohol is considered a factor in the crash. It’s unknown if seatbelts were in use at the time.

Police are continuing to investigate.
