A man in his twenties is dead following a collision Monday afternoon.

At 3:10 pm, on August 24, 2020, Killarney RCMP responded to a report of an injured male lying next to his vehicle off of Road 125 West, south of the intersection with Highway 3, located 16 kilometres west of Highway 10, in the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester.

Officers believe that a pickup truck, being driven by a 22-year-old male from the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, collided into the rear trailer of a large gravel truck without the driver of this vehicle being made aware.

The gravel truck had continued driving on while the 22-year-old’s vehicle came to a stop in a field adjacent to the road. He was transported to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Killarney RCMP, along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist, continues to investigate.
