On July 11, 2012, at about 4:30am, Headingley RCMP as well as local emergency services were dispatched to the scene of a fatal vehicle rollover on Highway 248, about 5 km north of Elie, Manitoba.

Initial investigation indicates that a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu was travelling north on Highway 248, when it left the roadway, rolled over at least once and ejected the driver.

Police say that the driver, a 52-year-old man from Cartier, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

RCMP report that there were no other persons or vehicles involved.

An RCMP Traffic Collision Analyst will be attending to assist with the investigation. Seat belt use is considered to be a factor in the collision at this time.
