Two women were taken to hospital Wednesday afternoon following a multi-vehicle crash near Portage la Prairie.
RCMP say emergency crews were called to the crash on Highway 1 and Road 42, two kilometres west of Portage, about 4 p.m.
A Chevy Traverse was westbound on Highway 1 when it collided with a grain auger being towed by a pickup truck that was turning southbound on Road 42. The Chevy Traverse was then rear-ended by a westbound semi-trailer.
The 45-year-old female driver of the Chevy Traverse was taken to hospital with unknown injuries. The 18-year-old female passenger was taken to hospital for precautionary measures. The 58-year-old male driver of the pickup truck and the 49-year-old driver of the semi-trailer were not injured.
