  • Print

A 22-year old mother behind the wheel of a pick-up truck is facing charges following a collision early Tuesday morning near Brandon, but both she and her two month old baby boy are ok.

The pair, from Shilo, were released from hospital late Tuesday said Brandon RCMP in a statement in which they announced the young mother faces charges under the Highway Traffic Act .

Brandon RCMP reported earlier Tuesday they were called to a collision on the Trans Canada at provincial highway 250 just before 7:30 a.m.

Investigators say they believe the pickup truck, driven by the woman with the baby as a passenger, pulled onto the Trans Canada from Hwy 250 just as a semi-trailer was approaching the junction.

The semi collided with the truck causing it to spin out of control and end up in the ditch.

The 55-year old Lorette man driving the semi was not injured.

Both mother and child, however, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and released later in the day.

Brandon RCMP continue to investigate the crash.
