An early-morning crash on a highway near Lac du Bonnet has left an 82-year-old man dead.
Mounties say it happened just after 6 a.m. on Provincial Road 313, around 15 kilometres east of the town.
An 82-year-old driving a minivan was trying to turn left onto Channel Drive, when he was struck from behind by a pickup truck, being driven by a 32-year-old man from Winnipeg.
The senior flew out of the vehicle and was pronounced dead on scene, while the truck driver was taken to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
The investigation continues.
