Ashern and Lundar RCMP responded to a fatal two-vehicle collision last night around 10:15, just north of Eriksdale on Highway 6 at the intersection of Highway 68.

The preliminary investigation suggests a car, carrying five people was travelling east on Highway 68 and failed to stop at the stop sign, before colliding with a northbound SUV in the intersection.

All five occupants of the car were transported to a hospital, where a 21-year-old female from Dauphin, who was a passenger in the car, was pronounced dead.

The two occupants of the SUV were also taken to a hospital.

The Ashern RCMP along with a forensic collision reconstructionist is continuing to investigate.
