An SUV transporting the driver and two passengers had left the roadway and rolled.

As a result of the collision, a 33-year-old male passenger who was seated in the rear, and a 31-year-old male passenger seated in the front sustained injuries and were transported to an area hospital.

Unfortunately, the 33-year-old male passenger died of his injuries a short time later. The front seat passenger was treated for his injuries.

Rattanathongsay was released by a Justice to appear in Hanna Provincial Court on February 27, 2019.

As this matter is now before the courts no further information will be provided.
