On September 4, 2017, just after 7pm, Treherne RCMP received a report of an all-terrain vehicle collision in the RM of Victoria, Manitoba on Road 40 North, close to the intersection of Road 65 West.
Police say that when officers arrived on scene, the ATV was in the middle of Road 40 North and an ATV trailer was flipped over in the north ditch.
Early investigation indicates that the ATV was traveling east on Road 40 North when the driver lost control and the ATV overturned. It is undetermined at this time if the ATV did a complete rollover.
RCMP report that the 55-year-old male rider, from Holland, Manitoba, was transported to hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Police note that the rider was not wearing a helmet and alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision. He was traveling alone at the time of the incident.
The investigation continues with the assistance of a RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist.
