Investigators believe the man was travelling north when his vehicle entered the southbound lane, collided with the semi and then rolled into a ditch.

The driver of the semi, a 37-year-old man from Steinbach, was uninjured and pulled his vehicle over to the side of the highway afterward.

Stonewall RCMP along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist are investigating.
