Police said in a release on Saturday that a 28-year-old Winnipeg man has died of injuries sustained in a crash on Friday.

Around 10:15 a.m. on Aug. 10, Steinbach RCMP responded to a report of a multi-vehicle collision on Highway 52, two kilometres west of Mitchell.

The investigation has determined that a gravel truck was travelling westbound on Highway 52, when it signalled that it was going to turn south. The truck slowed as it waited for eastbound traffic to clear before proceeding.

Another vehicle, a van, being driven by a 19-year-old male from Ile des Chenes, came to a stop behind the gravel truck when it was subsequently struck from behind by a pickup truck, being driven by a 22-year-old male from Mitchell. The force of this collision pushed the van into the gravel truck and then into the oncoming lane, where it collided head-on with an eastbound vehicle, being driven by 28-year-old male from Winnipeg.

The 28-year-old driver and his 23-year-old female passenger, also from Winnipeg, were both transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries. The 28-year-old was later pronounced deceased. The 23-year-old female remains in hospital with serious injuries.

The 19-year-old male in the van was also transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released.

Alcohol is not a factor in the collision.
