Fatal accident at White Bear

Comments

One person was killed and three others were taken to hospital following a vehicle rollover on April 7 at the White Bear First Nation.

Carlyle RCMP responded to the accident, which occurred on White Bear's main grid road. Upon arrival, RCMP members found a red Pontiac Grand Am had rolled several times, and two of the five occupants were ejected.

Four of the five occupants were transported to Arcola Health Centre, and the fifth occupant, a 22-year-old female from White Bear, declined medical attention.

One of the passengers, a 17-year-old female from White Bear, died at hospital. Her name will not be released, at the request of the family.

The driver of the vehicle, an 18-year-old female from Carlyle, remains at the Arcola Health Centre for observation. A 22-year-old female from Stoughton and an 18-year-old female from White Bear suffered what were described to be serious injuries, and were transported by the STARS Air Ambulance to hospital in Regina.  

A member of the Yorkton Forensic Traffic Collision Unit attended to the scene and is assisting with the investigation.

Alcohol and speed are considered to be contributing factors in the accident. The investigation is continuing and charges are pending.
