FORT MCMURRAY (660 NEWS) – A 38-year-old Fort McMurray man was killed in an off-road vehicle rollover earlier this week.

Wood Buffalo RCMP say the man was a passenger in the vehicle driven by a 27-year-old Fort McMurray man. They were riding on an off-road trail approximately one kilometre west of Hangingstone River, about three kilometres south of Highway 69 and Highway 63.

EMS, Fire, Local HERO Medevac officials, and RCMP responded at approximately 11:45 p.m. Monday night and the passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.

RCMP say the trail was icy due to snow melting during the day and re-freezing at night.

The investigation into the fatal crash continues and no names have been released.
