A 30-year-old man was killed Saturday when the vehicle he was in struck a tree and ejected him on the embankment of the Pinawa Channel.
Lac du Bonnet RCMP received a report at around 10:30 a.m. Sunday about a crash at the end of Provincial Road 211 in Pinawa. When officers arrived, they found the Powerview man deceased on scene.
