One driver in critical condition after three-vehicle collision near Mitchell

  • Print

A woman was taken to hospital in critical condition following a three-vehicle crash in the R.M. of Hanover this morning.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., Steinbach RCMP and emergency personnel were dispatched to a collision involving a minivan, a car and an empty school bus on Highway 52 near the community of Mitchell.

The investigation revealed that a westbound car attempted to pass the school bus, which was turning off the highway. The driver of the car became aware of the oncoming minivan and tried to veer back into its original lane, but instead slammed into the side of the bus. The minivan then collided with the car.

Five people were injured in the accident and taken to hospital. The female driver of the car, a resident of Hanover, was transported to Winnipeg in critical condition. The four other people have non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the incident.
