Authorities are investigating after slippery conditions Monday morning may have contributed to a fatal crash.

During the morning commute, a crash occurred on the Perimeter Highway between Portage Avenue and Roblin Boulevard. RCMP officers from Headingley and Stonewall arrived at approximately 8:30 Monday morning to find evidence of a serious crash.

Police say a 28-year-old man travelling southbound lost control and collided with a pole. He was found dead at the scene.

RCMP says at the time the road was slippery. They do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Headingley Traffic Services, the Criminal Collision Investigation Team, and a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist are investigating.
