A 31-year-old man from Portage la Prairie died Saturday after striking a group of trees, which threw him from his ATV, according to local RCMP.
RCMP were called to the scene — a dirt trail off Provincial Road 331 near the Hoop and Holler bend — around 6:40 p.m.
When officers arrived, the man was unresponsive and was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The victim was wearing a helmet and was not travelling alone at the time of the crash. Alcohol is considered a factor in the accident, police said.
A forensic collision reconstructionist with the RCMP continues to investigate.
