A seven-year-old girl died and five other people from Ontario and Saskatchewan were injured in a crash near Carnduff, Sask., on Monday.

The mini-van rolled into a ditch at around 6:25 p.m. CST on Highway 318, about 10 kilometres north of the town, RCMP said.

Two families were in the van, both from Wheatley, Ont., although one of the families had recently moved to Storthoaks, Sask.

The seven-year-old girl, who's from Storthoaks, died at the scene.

Five others received injuries and were taken to hospital in Regina, including:

  • a boy, 14, a girl, 15, and a woman, 36, from Storthoaks, and
  • a boy, eight, and a woman, 41, from Wheatley.

A one-year-old baby from Wheatley wasn't injured.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Police said some of the people in the mini-van weren't wearing safety belts.

Police had earlier said it was a two-vehicle crash, but later clarified that it was a single-vehicle rollover.

Carnduff is about 300 kilometres southeast of Regina. Wheatley is in southwestern Ontario, about 60 kilometres southeast of Windsor.
