Alcohol eyed in deadly ATV crash

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the death of a 20-year-old man who was thrown from his quad near Carman during an ATV derby.

Manitou RCMP say a group of three males were riding on a gravel road around 6:30 p.m. when the lead rider went around a corner out of view of the other two riders. When the two riders came into view of the lead rider, he had been thrown from his quad and was unresponsive.

Local EMS attended and the rider from the RM of North Cypress was pronounced deceased on scene in Notre dame de Lourdes. He was transported to Carman Hospital.

Police say he was not wearing a helmet.

When reached by phone Saturday night, town mayor Denis Bibault said he and a friend were two of the first people to come across the scene.

“My friend got out and knelt down beside the body, but there was nothing he could do,” Bibault said.

Bibault said he didn’t know the victim.

The town’s website says the annual derby attracted “close to 1,000 ATVs and riders” in 2013.

RCMP said Sunday it isn’t clear if the victim was registered in the derby.

An autopsy has been ordered and RCMP say they aren’t releasing the man’s name.
