RCMP say alcohol may have been a factor in a two-vehicle crash in Mitchell Thursday that claimed the life of a Zhoda man.

The collision occurred in the eastbound lanes of Highway 52 near Ash Street around 6:30 p.m., Manitoba RCMP said in a Friday release.

An eastbound car travelling at a high rate of speed struck another vehicle, lost control, and rolled.

Its lone occupant, a 37-year-old male from Zhoda who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene, RCMP said, while the driver of the hit vehicle was uninjured.

Traffic was diverted for several hours around a closed section of Highway 52 while crews cleared the scene.

An RCMP forensic collision reconstructionist is assisting in the continuing investigation, police said.
