On Sunday, September 30, 2018, at approximately 4:15 p.m., Meadow Lake RCMP, along with Meadow Lake EMS and the Meadow Lake Fire Department responded to a two vehicle motor vehicle collision on Highway 55 approximately eight kilometres east of Meadow Lake. The driver and lone occupant of a west bound vehicle, a 41 year-old male from Meadow Lake, was transported to hospital where he was pronounced deceased. As a precaution, three occupants from the east bound vehicle were also transported to and treated at hospital and have since been released.
Initial investigation has determined that the west bound vehicle went into the east bound lane while travelling. Both vehicles ended up in the ditch south of the road and the west bound vehicle rolled.
Meadow Lake RCMP along with an RCMP Collision Reconstructionist are continuing to investigate.
