On June 21, 2021, at approximately 12:10 am, Stonewall RCMP received a report that a person had been struck on Highway 7 at Provincial Road 75 North in the RM of Rockwood. When officers arrived at the location, a male was on the roadway receiving medical attention. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Initial investigation has determined that a SUV was travelling southbound when it struck the 50-year-old male from Selkirk. It appears the male was walking partially on the road in the median lane when he was struck. There are no lights on this portion of the highway, and it was dark at the time of the collision.
The 45-year-old male driver from Winnipeg and his female passenger were not injured.
Alcohol is not considered a factor in the collision.
The investigation continues with the assistance of a RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist.
