RCMP and EMS arrived on scene and found a pick-up truck on its side. The driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, was located inside the vehicle.
RCMP report that the driver, identified as a 40-year-old man from West St. Paul, Manitoba, succumbed to his injuries.
Police say that it appears the vehicle was travelling south on Highway 8, when, for reasons that remain under investigation, the driver lost control and rolled.
