A 20-year-old man has died of injuries sustained in a two-vehicle collision involving a cement truck and a minivan in Steinbach on Friday shortly after noon.

Police said in a release that investigators have determined the eastbound van, driven by a 46-year-old male from Kleefeld with his 20-year son in the passenger seat, was making a left turn onto Industrial Road from Highway 52 when it was struck by a westbound cement truck driven by a 50-year-old male from La Broquerie.

The occupants of the van were taken to Bethesda Hospital, where the 20-year-old succumbed to his injuries.

Last month, the province announced it will fund the installation of traffic lights at the intersection and said work will be completed by the spring of 2019.

Alcohol and speed are not considered factors in the collision and seatbelts were in use.

Police said the westbound lanes of Highway 52 near the scene of the accident and Industrial Drive, between Hwy 52 and Acres Drive, remain closed to traffic.

Story update 4:10 p.m.: Story changed to note death of passenger and further details from RCMP press release.
