On February 12, 2020, at approximately 10:15 pm, Ashern and Lundar RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision on Highway 6 at the intersection of Highway 68, just north of Eriksdale.
The preliminary investigation suggests that a car travelling eastbound on Highway 68, failed to stop at the stop sign, proceeded into the intersection, and collided with a northbound SUV.
There were five occupants in the car, and all were transported to hospital. A 21-year-old female from Dauphin, who was a passenger in the car, was pronounced deceased in hospital.
There were two occupants in the SUV, and both were taken to hospital.
Ashern RCMP along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist, continue to investigate.
