Officers from the Gypsumville detachment were called to an incident on Memorial Crescent in Lake St. Martin First Nation around 10:05 p.m., where they found an ATV in a ditch.

The ATV’s driver, 39, had tried to make a turn but lost control, causing the vehicle to roll and throw off the three riders.
