At about 1:40 p.m. Friday, Morris RCMP said they were called about the crash on PR 336, about one kilometre north of Highway 23, which is just north of Lowe Farm.

They said a pickup truck was heading north on the road when the driver lost control on the gravel, going off the road and rolling several times.
