RCMP in Rosthern say they've identified a man who was injured on Sunday on Highway 11.

Around 3 a.m. on Sunday, police received a report of a collision involving a pedestrian on the highway a few kilometres north of Duck Lake, according to an RCMP news release.

Officers found an injured man at the scene who was taken to hospital for treatment, while police said the driver stayed behind.

"Our thoughts are with his family," RCMP said.

Duck Lake is located about 83 kilometres north of Saskatoon.
