A 17-year-old girl is dead after a rollover between La Salle and Sanford, say Manitoba RCMP.
The single-vehicle incident took place around 9:15 Wednesday morning on Provincial Road 247.
Police said the investigation has determined that the vehicle, an SUV, lost control on the gravel road and rolled into a ditch, then a field adjacent to the roadway.
The driver, from La Salle, who was the only occupant, was pronounced dead on scene.
RCMP continue to investigate, with the help of a forensic collision reconstructionist, but said alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor and that the victim was wearing a seatbelt.
