Police said on Friday morning that a 6-year-old boy suffered critical injuries in an accident that occurred around 5:40 p.m. on Thursday, at the intersection of Highway 52 and Provincial Road 216 north of Kleefeld.

A small hatchback, driven by a 26-year-old St Malo woman, was travelling westbound on Highway 52 when it attempted to turn south on PR 216 and was struck by an eastbound vehicle, police said.

The driver of the hatchback and her 6-year-old son were transported to hospital in Winnipeg. The woman suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. Her son remains in critical condition.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 23-year-old female, was transported to hospital in Steinbach with minor injuries.
