STARS crews prepare to airlift crash victim near Belmont to hospital on Saturday.

Alcohol has not been ruled out as a factor in a collision near Belmont that left two men injured, one of them airlifted to hospital.

Turtle Mountain Area RCMP say a car was travelling westbound on an unmarked road. The car drove past a stop sign and was T-boned by a pickup truck going north.

The 44-year-old driver of the car was airlifted to a Winnipeg hospital, while the pickup truck driver suffered minor injuries.

Colin Fast, a spokesman for STARS, said ground crews took about an hour to extract the man from his car, and he was airlifted to hospital with serious upper-body injuries.

Belmont is 200 kilometres west of Winnipeg.

The investigation continues.
