On March 20, 2024, at approximately 9:00 am, Whitemouth RCMP received a report of a vehicle located off the roadway on Highway 44 near Milner Ridge Road (also known as Seddons Corner). It was also reported that someone was deceased.

When officers arrived on scene, a deceased male was located, and the car was severely damaged.

Investigation determined that the collision had occurred at approximately 10:30 pm on March 19, 2024. The vehicle was travelling westbound on Highway 44 when it hit the south shoulder, overcorrected, crossed the highway, and entered the north ditch then into the bush, striking a tree. It is believed speed was a factor in the collision.

The 20-year-old driver and lone occupant was from Tyndall, Manitoba.

A RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist is assisting with the ongoing investigation.
