One woman was taken to hospital following a crash between a train and minivan this morning.
The accident happened at approximately 11 a.m. on Beaverhill Boulevard near Abington Road in Southdale. It appears an eastbound red minivan struck a northbound CP train at the crossing.
Winnipeg police and emergency services personnel arrived on scene and used the jaws of life to extract an elderly woman out of the vehicle. Police say she was taken to hospital in unstable condition.
The train remains stopped in the area, affecting traffic in both directions on nearby Bishop Grandin Boulevard. Motorists should avoid the area if possible.
The investigation is ongoing.
