Members of the Richer Fire Department attend to the scene of a single-vehicle accident just south of Richer on Provincial Road 302 Wednesday afternoon.

Fire chief Ed Belisle said an unconscious motorist had to be extricated from a locked vehicle that left the roadway.

Steinbach RCMP said in a release on Thursday morning the vehicle appeared to have veered off the highway, driven through the ditch, and come to rest against several trees.

Police said that EMS and fire crews on scene administered CPR to the occupant, a 64-year-old man from the RM of La Broquerie, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

On scene yesterday evening, RCMP told The Carillon the man died of natural causes. Steinbach RCMP added in their Thursday morning release that no visible trauma was observed.

Police continue their investigation.
