It happened around 8:15am Monday on Highway 2, about 4.5-kilometres east of Souris in the RM of Glenwood.
Police say a westbound car operated by the victim pulled into the eastbound lane as he tried to pass a semi.
That’s when he collided with the eastbound pickup truck.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, while the 57-year-old Souris man driving the truck was treated for life-threatening injuries.
Police say the victim was wearing a seatbelt while the other driver was not.
Visibility was poor at the time, though alcohol has not been ruled out.
The investigation continues.
