Sunday afternoon, reports came in that the highway was closed. At the time, no futher information was available. Social media users said they saw a gold SUV smashed in the front and back.

The highway was re-opened later in the evening.

On Tuesday, the Prince Albert RCMP sent out a media release stating that at about 4 p.m. Sunday, they responded to a single vehicle rollover on Highway 3. The lone occupant died while en route to the hospital.

An RCMP traffic reconstructionist attended the scene. The coroner’s office has also been consulted. An investigation into the cause of the event is ongoing.
