RCMP said today that the two people who died in a collision near Portage la Prairie Wednesday were a 21-year-old woman from Erickson who was driving, and a 20-year-old woman from Winnipeg who was a passenger.

The names of the women were not released by the RCMP.

The collision occurred at the controlled intersection of Highway 1 and Provincial Trunk Highway 305 in the RM of Portage la Prairie, said Sgt. Line Karpish.

"It has been determined that the car was travelling east on Highway 1 when it collided with a semi, driven by a 25-year-old South Norfolk man, travelling north on 305 and about to proceed west on Highway 1 when the collision occurred," Karpish said. "The investigation into what led to the collision continues. However, charges are not contemplated."
