Off-duty RCMP officer killed in Saskatchewan crash
An off-duty Estevan RCMP officer has been killed and another officer was injured in a crash in southeastern Saskatchewan.
RCMP said the single-vehicle crash happened around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 361, a kilometre and a half east of Lampman.
Investigators said the car was heading east when it left the highway and rolled.
The driver, a 55-year-old man, was declared dead at the scene. His name has not been released.
The lone passenger, a 27-year-old man who was also off-duty, was taken to hospital for treatment of his injuries. There is no word on his current condition.
Police said the car involved in the rollover was a private vehicle and the preliminary investigation has determined alcohol was not a factor.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
RCMP said they will bring in resources to support members of the Estevan detachment.
Lampman is roughly 190 kilometres southeast of Regina.
