Fatal collision in southern Manitoba

August 11, 2019 3:53 pm

At approximately 10:30 am on Saturday, August 10, 2019, an officer with the Morris RCMP was conducting a patrol on Highway 14 when he came across a two-vehicle collision, located approximately eight kilometres west of Highway 75 in the RM of Montcalm.

The investigation has determined that a westbound vehicle, being driven by a 24-year-old male from Maryfield, Saskatchewan, crossed over the centre line and collided with an eastbound vehicle, being driven by a 62-year-old male from Ste. Agathe.

A 14-year-old female passenger in the westbound vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The three other occupants were transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The 62-year-old male driver was not injured.

Officers believe seatbelts were in use and that alcohol was not a factor in the collision.

Morris RCMP, along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist, continue to investigate.
