Manitoba RCMP believe alcohol was a factor in a fatal two-vehicle collision on Highway 59 Friday evening.

The crash happened at around 7:50 p.m. north of the Highway 12 junction in the RM of Alexandar.

RCMP say a southbound pickup truck crossed over the centre line and collided with a northbound pickup truck being driven by a 50-year-old Selkirk man. The driver of the northbound truck was pronounced deceased at the scene. His passengers — a 39-year-old man and 38-year-old woman from Selkirk — were taken to hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The 30-year-old man driving the southbound truck, along with his 31-year-old male passenger, were also sent to hospital. Both men are from the RM of St. Clements.

Selkirk RCMP are continuing to investigate.
