RCMP Release

At approximately 7:50 pm on November 16, 2018, Selkirk RCMP responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 59, located north of the Highway 12 junction in the RM of Alexander.

Officers believe that a southbound pickup truck, being driven by a 30-year-old male along with a 31-year-old male passenger, both from the RM of St. Clements, crossed over the centre line and collided with a northbound pickup truck, being driven by a 50-year-old male, along with a 39-year-old male and 38-year-old female passenger, all from Selkirk.

The 50-year-old male driver of the pickup truck was pronounced deceased at the scene and all four other occupants were transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police believe alcohol is a factor in the collision.

Selkirk RCMP along with a forensic collision reconstructionist continue to investigate.
