A 22-year-old man from Opaskwayak Cree Nation has died after being hit by two vehicles in Selkirk, Manitoba.

The collision happened Tuesday shortly before 9 p.m. on Highway 9 just north of Manitoba Avenue.

RCMP say a 52-year-old woman from East St. Paul was travelling south when she noticed a pedestrian in dark clothing standing in the middle of the highway. She attempted to avoid hitting him but was unsuccessful. A second vehicle, travelling north on Highway 9, couldn’t stop in time and also hit the pedestrian.

Both drivers stopped and immediately called 911. The victim was administered first aid but succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

Speed and alcohol don’t appear to be factors in the collision.

RCMP continue to investigate.
