The RCMP is investigating an incident involving an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and a haybine being pulled by a tractor southeast of Dauphin.

Yesterday evening, Dauphin RCMP received a report of a collision on Road 144 North near Ochre Beach.

A report sent out this morning indicated that a 46-year-old male from the RM of Dauphin was riding an ATV when he collided with the back end of a moving haybine. The farm equipment was being operated by a 57-year-old male from the RM of Lakeshore.

When officers arrived on the scene of the incident, the 46-year-old male was pronounced dead and it is believed that speed was a factor.

The male operating the haybine was uninjured.

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