The accident occurred at the intersection of Highway 52 and Provincial Road 216, north of Kleefeld.

A vehicle driven by a 23-year-old female from the RM of Hanover, was travelling eastbound on Highway 52 when she collided with a westbound vehicle, being driven by a 26-year-old female from St Malo, who was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto PR 216.
