A 36-year-old RM of Tache resident died on Saturday night in an off-road vehicle rollover.

Around 11:30 p.m., Steinbach RCMP responded to a report of the crash. Police said in release on Sunday afternoon that the 36-year-old male was with an eight-year-old male, also from the RM of Tache, in a side-by-side off-road vehicle, when it rolled and landed on top of the adult male.

The man was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The eight-year-old was not injured. 

Police said it is believed alcohol was a factor in the crash and said it appeared neither occupant was wearing a helmet or seatbelt.
