Four people were injured after two vehicles collided Thursday evening on Highway 10 about 16 kilometres south of Brandon, RCMP said this morning.

A man from B.C. , 27, driving a 2002 GMC Jimmy suffered 'significant injuries'. He has been taken to a Winnipeg hospital.

Two occupants of a Honda van remain in Brandon Hospital with undisclosed injuries. A 42-year-old male passenger was treated and released Thursday night.

The northbound GMC Jimmy driven by the  27-year-old British Columbia man crossed the centre line around 7:10 p.m. and collided with the  southbound van driven by a 76-year-old man from rural southwestern Manitoba,  RCMP Staff Sgt. Mike Zens said.

The southbound van had two passengers, a 42-year-old man and 48-year-old woman, also from rural southwestern Manitoba.

Both vehicles sustained significant damages in the crash.

 "Blue Hills area RCMP with the assistance of the Criminal Code Investigative team and a Forensic collision analyst, continue with this investigation. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor in this crash," Zens said.
