A two-vehicle collision at a busy highway intersection near Ste Anne Thursday afternoon killed an elderly man and sent three other adults to hospital.
Around 1:30 p.m., a southbound grey sedan, driven by a 38-year-old Winnipeg man, collided with a westbound silver Buick SUV, driven by a 73-year-old RM of La Broquerie woman, at the intersection of Highway 12 and Provincial Road 210.
The crumpled vehicles came to rest in the southbound ditch of Highway 12.
One of the SUV’s two passengers, a 73-year-old La Broquerie man, succumbed to injuries at the scene.
STARS airlifted the SUV’s second passenger, a 72-year-old La Broquerie woman, to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, while ambulances drove the two injured drivers to hospital, Manitoba RCMP said in a release Friday.
Steinbach RCMP and a forensic collision reconstructionist continue to investigate and do not believe alcohol was a factor, but have yet to determine if seatbelts were in use.
Southbound Highway 12 remained closed for several hours after the collision.
Update: Story rewritten to include further RCMP information about the age and residency of collision victims. (May 25, 12:25 p.m.)
