On September 11, 2022, at approximately 10:30 am, Lac du Bonnet RCMP received a report of a fatal collision at the end of Provincial Road 211 in Pinawa, Manitoba. When officers arrived on scene, a 30-year-old male from Powerview was declared deceased.
Initial investigation has determined that the collision had occurred the night before on September 10, 2022, at approximately 10:30-11:30 pm. The male driver and lone occupant of the vehicle had been travelling eastbound on PR 211 at a high rate of speed when the car struck a tree. The vehicle came to rest on the embankment of the Pinawa Channel. The male was ejected from the vehicle onto the embankment and succumbed to his injuries. It appears he was not wearing a seatbelt.
A RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist is assisting with the ongoing investigation.
