RCMP have reopened the Trans-Canada Highway just east of Portage la Prairie.
 
Highway 1 was closed at Portage la Prairie this morning after three people were hurt in a two-vehicle collision around 4:30 a.m.
 
Traffic was rerouted on Highway 1-A through the city of Portage la Prairie.
 
RCMP Sgt. Line Karpish said a semi and a pickup truck collided at Highway 1 and Angle Road just east of the city.
 
"Responders arrived on scene and found a semi hauling hazardous materials overturned and a pickup truck involved in the collision," Karpish said. "The 51-year-old semi driver and his adult male passenger, both of Calgary, Alberta, were transported to Portage District General Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
 
"The driver of the pickup truck, identified as an 80-year-old Portage man, was also transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries," she said. "Early investigation shows that the driver of the pickup truck was southbound on Angle Road, proceeded to cross Highway 1, when the eastbound semi collided with the pickup truck."
 
Karpish said no leak of hazardous material was detected.
