A 24-year-old Cambridge Bay man perished when he lost control of his all-terrain vehicle on May 11.
The driver crashed into a snowbank around 11 p.m. and was not wearing a helmet, according to the RCMP, who added that speed and alcohol are also considered to be factors in the tragedy.
The community’s bylaw officer initially performed CPR on the man and RCMP assisted in those efforts, arriving a short time later. The individual was taken to the health centre but was pronounced deceased.
The Mounties didn’t release the man’s name.
Although a police investigation has determined only a single vehicle was involved, the RCMP would like to speak to anyone who has any information relating to this incident. The detachment can be reached at 867-983-0123.
