The victim was taken to the Leonora Cottage Hospital in an unconscious state and was pronounced dead on arrival; the body is presently at the Ezekiel’s Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem examination.

A breathalyzer test was administered to the driver but no alcohol was found in his breath, the police say.
