Neepawa RCMP say one person died following a utility terrain vehicle accident in early May.

On May 1, at approximately 7:45 pm, Neepawa RCMP received a report of a utility terrain vehicle (UTV) rollover. Officers attended immediately. Upon arrival at the scene, officers saw three females who had been ejected from the UTV in need of medical attention.

Investigation has determined that the youths were travelling on Road 76 West when the UTV slid into the ditch and rolled several times.

The driver and one passenger, both 14 years old, were transported to hospital with serious injuries. The second passenger, a 12-year-old female, was transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries. On May 5, 2023, she succumbed to those injuries.


None of the females were wearing seat belts or helmets.
