At approximately 6:35 am, on August 23, 2019, Fisher Branch RCMP received a report of a single-vehicle collision on Provincial Road 224, located six kilometres south west of the Fisher River Cree Nation.
The investigation has determined that an SUV, being driven by a 52-year-old male from Dallas, Manitoba, was heading south on Jackhead Road when it failed to stop at the intersection with PR 224. The vehicle entered the ditch and struck the embankment.
The 52-year-old driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced deceased on scene.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision.
