A 41-year-old woman from China has been killed in a single vehicle rollover in northern Saskatchewan.


The woman was a passenger in a vehicle that rolled about 62 kilometres north of La Ronge last night, shortly after 6 pm.


The RCMP believes the accident happened when the driver tried to avoid hitting a moose that was on the highway.


Two other occupants of the vehicle received minor injuries, while a fourth occupant was airlifted to a Saskatoon hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.


The RCMP says alcohol was not a factor.
