A 69-year-old man is dead and two others injured in a two-vehicle collision just east of Neepawa this morning.
Richard Gutowski, 69, was driving east on Highway 16, about 20 kilometres east of Neepawa, when his car spun out of control and struck a west-bound truck carrying two passengers. The incident occurred at around 11 a.m.
Gutowski was declared deceased at the scene. The two passengers in the truck are being treated for their injuries. Police closed Highway 16 for three hours during the investigation.
Police are urging drivers take extra care on the highway as warmer temperatures are making the road surfaces "very slippery".
