Three males in their 20s are dead after a vehicle rollover on Highway 2 before midnight on Sunday.
RCMP members responded to the scene, 40 kilometers south of Moose Jaw.
The collision remains under investigation, but Moose Jaw RCMP confirmed on Monday in a press release that alcohol was a contributing factor. It also appeared to RCMP that at least some of the vehicle’s occupants weren’t wearing seatbelts.
Charges are pending against the 23-year-old driver of the vehicle.
Six males all between the ages of 21 to 24 occupied the vehicle. It was headed northbound when the vehicle left the road and rolled several times, coming to rest near the bottom of an embankment.
RCMP said a number of occupants were ejected from the vehicle. Two were pronounced dead at the scene.
Two were airlifted to hospital in Regina by STARS air ambulance. One of them, a 24-year-old male, died from injuries in the General Hospital on Monday afternoon. The other male remains in critical condition.
The two other survivors of the collision were transported to Union Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
RCMP did not release names of any of those involved in the collision on Monday.
