LESTOCK, Sask. — Police say two 10-year-old girls and an 18-year-old male driver were killed when a car flipped into a water-filled ditch in central Saskatchewan.
RCMP say the car went out of control and ended up submerged at the side of a road near Lestock, about 140 kilometres north of Regina.
A 14-year-boy who survived the crash tried in vain to help free the girls before going to a nearby home to call for help.
RCMP Sgt. Paul Dawson says Mounties were able to pull the two girls from the vehicle, but they both died at the scene.
The driver was found outside the car and was also dead.
No names have been released; however, the RCMP say all the victims were from the Muskowekwan First Nation.
