A teenage male from Winnipeg is facing two charges after a collision north of the city claimed the life of a young man earlier this week.

The Manitoba RCMP says in a release that officers from Selkirk RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Highway 8 and Highway 230, in the RM of St. Andrews, around 10:30 p.m. on July 18, 2022.

The RCMP say their initial investigation has determined that a SUV travelling west on Highway 230, entered the intersection when it was unsafe to do so and collided with a pickup truck pulling a camper trailer, which was travelling north on Highway 8.

The pickup truck with four occupants rolled into the ditch. A passenger in the truck, a 20-year-old male from the RM of St. Andrews, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

A second passenger, a 44-year-old female from the RM of St. Andrews, was transported to hospital with serious injuries. The driver, a 46-year-old male, and the last passenger, a 20-year-old female, were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver and sole occupant of the SUV, a 17-year-old male from Winnipeg, suffered minor injuries. He was arrested and is facing charges of Dangerous Operation of Motor Vehicle Causing Death and Dangerous Operation of Motor Vehicle Causing Bodily Harm.

Selkirk RCMP along with the RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team and a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist, continue to investigate.
