Police said the investigation has determined that the vehicle, an SUV, lost control on the gravel road and rolled into a ditch, then a field adjacent to the roadway.

The driver, from La Salle, who was the only occupant, was pronounced dead on scene.

RCMP continue to investigate, with the help of a forensic collision reconstructionist, but said alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor and that the victim was wearing a seatbelt.
