Lac du Bonnet RCMP responded to a fatal collision Sunday morning on PR 211 in Pinawa.

Officers arrived on the scene to find a 30-year-old male from Powerview deceased.

RCMP say their initial investigation determined that the collision had happened the night before around 10:30 to 11:30 pm.

It appears the male driver, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, had been travelling eastbound on PR 211 at a high rate of speed when the car struck a tree. The vehicle came to rest on the embankment of the Pinawa Channel. The male was ejected from the vehicle onto the embankment and succumbed to his injuries. RCMP say he was not wearing a seatbelt.

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