A woman is dead and a man is missing and presumed drowned after an ATV crash near the spillway of the Rivers reservoir.
Police released information about the crash only on Monday morning, although it happened about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday evening.
They say the 58-year-old Rivers woman was trying to drive an ATV down an embankment near the spillway when she lost control. The ATV hit a 39-year-old Brandon man who was fishing nearby, knocking him into the water, which swept him away.
The woman was killed in the crash; the man hasn't been found and police say he is presumed drowned.
Search and rescue efforts continue, but police say the water had a significant current and the man hasn't been located.
Police say that it doesn't look like alcohol was a factor in the crash, and that they believe the woman was wearing a helmet.
They continue to investigate, but will not be releasing names of the victims.
