TREACHEROUS highways across the province on Friday led to one fatality, three people in hospital and dozens of vehicles in ditches.

A 69-year-old man died following a two-vehicle collision on Highway 16, about 20 kilometres east of Neepawa, when his car spun out of control and struck a westbound truck carrying two passengers.

The incident occurred at around 11 a.m.

Richard Gutowski was declared dead at the scene. The two passengers in the truck were treated for injuries. Police closed Highway 16 for three hours during the investigation.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old man was rushed to hospital in Winnipeg after a single-vehicle accident on Highway 10 just north of Brandon.

Souris RCMP reported the man lost control of his southbound pickup truck, which rolled before coming to rest on its wheels shortly after 7 a.m.

In both cases, police cited slippery road conditions as a factor in the incidents.

Meanwhile, one person was sent to hospital with undetermined injuries after multiple vehicles slid off the Perimeter Highway between McGillivray Boulevard and Wilkes Avenue during rush hour in the late afternoon.
