A semi was headed westbound when it struck a farm tractor headed in the same direction, RCMP said in a press release on Wednesday morning.

A 51-year-old man from the RM of Reynolds and a 33-year-old female from the RM of Ste Anne were ejected from the tractor onto the highway. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The 33-year-old female was transported to hospital in unstable condition with serious injuries. Police said she remains in hospital in stable condition.

Charges are pending against the driver of the semi, a 70-year-old man from Montreal, who was not injured in the collision.
