HEADINGLEY — An Edmonton trucker is facing charges of dangerous operation causing death and resisting a police officer after a crash that killed a young man near Winnipeg.

The charges follow a head-on crash Monday night involving a semi and a pickup truck on the Trans-Canada Highway, just west of Winnipeg.

A 21-year-old Winnipeg man who was the lone occupant of the pickup died at the scene.

The driver of the semi was treated for minor injuries and was arrested upon release from hospital.

RCMP say an investigation has determined that the westbound semi crossed the highway centre line prior to the crash.

Randolf Enns, who is 33, remains in custody pending a court appearance.
