A 22 year old man is dead after a single vehicle roll-over last night on the Big River First Nation.


Seven other occupants of the car sustained injuries and were sent to both Spiritwood and Saskatoon hospitals for treatment.

The accident happened shortly after 7:30 pm.


RCMP spokesman Corporal Brian Jones says it’s still unclear as to how the accident happened.
