The vehicle was travelling south on Highway 783 when the driver lost control and veered into a ditch, rolling several times. Police say all five occupants were ejected from the vehicle. Emergency crews transported four people to hospital, including one in STARS air ambulance. One person was declared dead at the scene.

RCMP responded at roughly 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, along with Rosthern EMS and the Duck Lake Fire Department.

The investigation is still ongoing.
