A 40-year-old man from the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale is dead after the vehicle he was driving ended up on its roof.

Ashern RCMP said they got the call just before 4 a.m. Saturday about a crash on Old 514 Road, about five kilometres north of Highway 68. 

Officers found an SUV on its roof. 

They said the driver was not wearing a seat belt and had been thrown out of the vehicle. He died at the scene.

Police said a passenger, a 26-year-old man from Lake Manitoba First Nation, was buckled in and managed to get out of the vehicle. 

He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision.

As police were dealing with that situation, officers stopped another driver on the same road a few kilometres away.

They said the 46-year-old man was impaired and almost three times over the legal limit.

He is facing drunk driving charges.
