ROSSBURN, Man. — RCMP say two people have been killed in a single-vehicle rollover in western Manitoba.

Two other people were injured when the accident happened around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday on a road in the Rural Municipality of Rossburn.

Police say four people from Waywayseecappo First Nation were in the vehicle when it rolled several times, causing one person to be ejected.

A 45-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man died at the scene.

Two other men were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police believe the four were not wearing seatbelts and that speed may have been a factor in the accident.
