A 69-year-old man from Oak Lake died Thursday after a highway crash a day earlier in the rural municipality of Cartier.

The man was driving a Pontiac G6 that collided with a Chevrolet Suburban at the intersection of Highway 1 and PR 332 on Wednesday, say Manitoba RCMP.

A Chevrolet travelling westbound turned south on to PR 332, when it was hit in the passenger-side rear door by a Pontiac travelling eastbound, shortly after 6:30 p.m.

There were three passengers in the Pontiac and three others in the Chevrolet.

All passengers in the Pontiac and one from the Chevrolet were taken to a Winnipeg hospital with multiple injuries. The driver and front passenger of the Chevrolet were treated and released by local EMS.

The two other passengers in the Pontiac, both women, 63 and 67, remain in the hospital, as well as a 38-year-old female passenger from the Chevrolet.

Headingley RCMP determined alcohol was not a factor in the accident and the investigation continues.

The name of the deceased will not be released, say police.
