Two elderly women were killed Sunday morning in a three-vehicle crash, Oakbank RCMP report.

RCMP responded to the crash on Garven Road, just east of Provincial Road 206, just before 10:30 a.m., RCMP said.

An eastbound and westbound vehicle crashed head-on and a third vehicle was sideswiped after the initial crash, RCMP said.

An 80-year-old woman and an 86-year-old woman, who were in the eastbound vehicle, were killed. A third person was injured but there were no details available Sunday.

The three occupants of the westbound vehicle were taken to a Winnipeg hospital and were in stable condition Sunday. The two occupants of the sideswiped vehicle were not injured.

Alcohol is not considered a factor and the names of the deceased will not be released.
