The Maple Creek RCMP is requesting the public's assistance with their investigation of a two-vehicle collision that occurred Aug. 16 at the Junction of Hwy. #1 and Hwy. #21 at 3:35 p.m., resulting in the death of one of the drivers.
Investigators are asking anyone who saw the collision to contact the Maple Creek RCMP detachment with information.
On Aug. 16, a 1998 Chev Lumina being driven by a lone 66-year-old male was heading northbound on Highway 21 when it collided with a westbound 1952 Chevy at the intersection of Highway 1. Both males were conscious and walking when police arrived on scene, but were transported to Maple Creek hospital.
The male driver of the Lumina was released from hospital later the same day.
The condition of the 44-year-old driver and lone occupant of the 1952 Chevy deteriorated and he was airlifted to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon due to serious head injuries. Unfortunately the driver of the 1952 Chevy passed away at 4:10 a.m. Aug. 17 as a result of his injuries. The Deceased is from Regina, but his name has not been released at the request of his family.
Alcohol was not a factor, driving conditions were dry and the weather was clear.
