A two vehicle accident south of Steinbach on Highway 12 required the services of the STARS air ambulance on Wednesday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the accident about a half mile south of Hanover Road around 10 a.m.

Assistant chief Russ Reimer said it appears a northbound van and southbound semi clipped each other in what he described as a "glancing blow."

The female driver of the van was extricated from the vehicle and was transported to Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. Reimer said the woman was in stable condition on scene but the extent of her injuries were unknown.

The semi driver was uninjured.

Reimer said this collision is just the latest on many similar incidents along this portion of Highway 12 in recent years.

"I’m not sure what it about this stretch or what people are doing but be careful when you drive here," he cautioned.

Reimer said an RCMP traffic analyst was expected on the scene and he anticipated the highway would remain closed for at least an hour.
