Slippery, snow-packed roads are being blamed for two multi-vehicle crashes on the Perimeter Highway that occurred this morning.
RCMP responded to collisions at the top of the Inkster Boulevard overpass and at the bottom of the same overpass.
Both crashes happened just after 8 a.m. As a result, one person was taken to hospital as a precaution.
The vehicles have been cleared from the scene and traffic is moving through the area.
RCMP say drivers should slow down, drive with caution and increase the distance between other vehicles.
Parts of Winnipeg and surrounding areas received up to four centimetres of snow overnight, creating potentially dangerous driving conditions in some areas.
Driving conditions are hazardous on several highways, the provincial government's highways report shows this morning.
The Perimeter Highway is partly snow-covered, with blowing snow in some areas. There's a northwest breeze at 20 km/h this morning but it will become light later in the day. Temperatures are falling to -17 C and the wind chill is -27.
The Trans-Canada Highway is partly snow-covered from Winnipeg to Steinbach, but more snow has accumulated between that point and the Ontario border.
Heading west, the Trans-Canada is partly snow-covered all the way to Brandon.
Flurries are expected this evening, and the overnight low is -17 C.
For Friday, expect a windy, cold day with a high of -14 C and a wind chill of -30.
Environment Canada is calling for similar conditions on Saturday, however, Sunday could see a high of 0 C under a partly sunny sky.
