The RCMP’s investigation into an ATV rollover that killed 19-year-old Drew Rossen remains ongoing, and so far no charges have been laid.
In the meantime, the Horizon School Division is sending a team of counselors and members of the traumatic events response team to students, staff, and families affected by the incident north of the Lanigan Central High School.
The school division also says it was shocked and saddened by Drew Rossen’s death.
The mother, Susanna Rossen hopes her son’s death as a result of impaired driving, is a wake-up call for her community.
She says her son was drinking at a house party Saturday evening (10th) with friends and were planning on attending a graduation party later that night.
She says Drew’s younger brother heard the ATV the 19-year-old was on crash, in a field, and texted him if he was okay, but never got a reply.
An autopsy revealed that Drew shattered his skull twice during the rollover; the 18-year-old driving the ATV has since been released from hospital.
