The initial investigation has determined that a vehicle, being driven by a 52-year-old male, was travelling eastbound on PR 311 when he attempted to pass another vehicle and lost control. The vehicle rolled multiple times in the south ditch. The driver, from Blumenort, was the lone occupant of the vehicle, and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors in the collision.
