Police said on Wednesday morning a 19-year-old man from the RM of Springfield died in a collision near Anola on Tuesday afternoon.

RCMP responded to the two-vehicle collision on Highway 12, about mile north of Anola, at about 12:40 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police said in a release on Wednesday morning that a pickup truck, driven by the 19-year-old male, was travelling northbound on Highway 12 when it rear-ended a garbage truck, which was stopped on the highway to collect garbage.

At the scene yesterday, police told The Carillon that the pick-up truck caught fire as a result of the crash. Springfield firefighters were called to the collision to extinguish the fire.

The 19-year-old, who was the lone occupant of the pick-up truck, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The 70-year-old male driver and the 24-year-old male passenger of the garbage truck, both from Winnipeg, were not injured.

Oakbank RCMP along with a forensic collision reconstructionist continue to investigate, police said.
