Woman struck, killed

A 28-year-old woman is dead after she was struck on Highway 10 while trying to flag down a vehicle.

Swan River RCMP say the woman, from Minitonas, was walking along the highway shortly after midnight Saturday. As she stepped onto the road, she was hit by a westbound vehicle.

She was transported to Swan Valley Health Centre in Swan River, where she was pronounced dead. The driver, from Brandon, suffered minor injuries. RCMP said alcohol appears to be a factor for the victim but not the driver.

Fire seriously injures man

A MAN was transported to hospital in critical condition after a suspicious fire early Saturday in the downtown area. Emergency crews were dispatched to the blaze at the Holiday Towers apartments at 160 Hargrave St. shortly after 5:33 a.m.

Fire officials say a man was transported to hospital with serious injuries, but his condition Saturday evening wasn't known.

The cause of the fire, which started on a stove, is being investigated, but it's considered suspicious. Damage is estimated at approximately $10,000.
