A 45 year old woman from Winnipeg has died as a result of a two vehicle collision late Saturday afternoon just south of Brunkild on Highway 3. The collision closed Highway 3 for several hours Saturday evening.
The RCMP’s initial investigation has determined a vehicle, travelling southbound, struck the shoulder, overcorrected and went into oncoming traffic, striking a northbound vehicle.
The driver of the northbound vehicle, a 43 year old male from Winkler, was transported to hospital, while his 45 year old female passenger from Winnipeg was pronounced deceased on scene.
Meanwhile, the 17 year old female driver of the southbound vehicle, and its three other female occupants, aged 38, 13 and 11, were transported to hospital in serious condition. All were from Morden.
RCMP indicate the investigation is ongoing.
