TRUCKER DIES AFTER SEMI FLIPS UP NORTH
A SASKATCHEWAN trucker has died after his semi-trailer flipped onto its roof in northern Manitoba on Saturday.
Cranberry Portage RCMP said on Sunday that the 34-year-old man, from Creighton, was driving southbound on Highway 10, about 35 kilometres north of Cranberry Portage, around 8:50 a.m., when the truck entered the right-side shoulder.
RCMP investigators believe when the driver over-corrected, the truck flipped onto its roof.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. It is not known if he was wearing his seatbelt, RCMP said.
Officers from the Cranberry Portage and Flin Flon detachments continue to investigate, along with a collision reconstructionist.
Cranberry Portage is 700 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.
