Upon arrival at the scene, officers discovered an unresponsive adult male. Local medical staff also attended and the male driver, a 19-year-old from Montreal Lake, was pronounced deceased.

Investigators had reason to believe that there was a second occupant in the vehicle at the time of the collision. An injured 17-year-old male, determined to have been the passenger, was located by police. He was taken to hospital in Prince Albert for treatment of what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.

The family of the deceased has been notified. His name will not be released.


An RCMP collision analyst attended the scene and the collision is still under investigation.
