A woman was transported to Winnipeg's Health Sciences Centre on Saturday afternoon after a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Road 37N and Road 38E.

Steinbach assistant fire chief Mike Penner said it appeared a northbound vehicle, with a lone female occupant, proceeded through a stop sign when it was unsafe to do so and was struck by a eastbound SUV.

The approach to the stop sign on Road 38E had ice covered sections but Penner said he couldn't confirm at this point whether road conditions were a factor.

He noted the eastbound driver was able to brake slightly, reducing the severity of the crash.

"There was an impact but not as bad as it potentially could have been," he said.

The female driver of the northbound vehicle was transported by STARS air ambulance to Winnipeg in stable condition.

The four occupants of the other vehicle were uninjured.
