Officers from the Churchill and Killarney RCMP Detachments each responded to separate snowmobile collisions over the weekend that claimed the lives of two Manitobans.

On November 30, 2019, just after 1:15 pm, Killarney RCMP responded to a report of a snowmobile collision near Orillia Street, located north-west of the community of Ninette.

A 28-year-old male, from the RM of Prairie Lakes, was travelling northbound on the side of the road when it appears he may have veered off and collided with a tree.

The 28-year-old, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

On December 1, 2019, at 7:35 am, officers from the Churchill Detachment received a report of a snowmobile collision in a back lane located near Kelsey Boulevard.

A 20-year-old male, from Churchill, was travelling northbound down the back lane when his snowmobile collided with a south facing flat deck semi-trailer.

The 20-year-old, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Both collisions remain under investigation.
