Collision injures three

THE Trans-Canada Highway was closed at Portage la Prairie Sunday morning after three people were hurt in a collision around 4:30 a.m.

Traffic was rerouted using Highway 1A through Portage la Prairie.

RCMP Sgt. Line Karpish said a semi-trailer truck and a pickup collided at Highway 1 and Angle Road just east of the city.

"Responders arrived on scene and found a semi hauling hazardous materials overturned and a pickup truck involved in the collision," Karpish said.

The 51-year-old semi-trailer truck driver and his adult male passenger, both from Calgary, were taken to hospital in Portage with non-life-threatening injuries, Karpish added.

"The driver of the pickup truck, identified as an 80-year-old Portage man, was also transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries," she said.

Karpish said no leak of hazardous material was detected.

 

Youths accused in killing

A St. Theresa Point man is dead and five youths are in jail after a homicide in the Island Lake community Thursday.

Around midnight, Island Lake RCMP learned 28-year-old Wayne Bradford Wood had been assaulted and left lying in a pool of his own blood on a road. Wood was taken by peace officers to a nursing station, where he was pronounced dead a short while later.

RCMP spent the next three days investigating the homicide and arrested five youths from the area between the ages of 15 and 17 on Sunday. All five are in police custody and have been charged with second-degree murder. They cannot be named.

They are scheduled to appear in a Winnipeg court today.

 

Man held in store holdup

POLICE arrested a 40-year-old man after an armed, disguised suspect held up a convenience store in the 800-block of Arlington Street around 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

Const. Eric Hofley said the suspect demanded cigarettes.

However, the 59-year-old clerk was able to lock herself away and call police. She was not injured.

 

Robbery suspect sought

WINNIPEG police are seeking a man after a robbery early Friday morning.

About 4:30 a.m., police were called to a convenience store in the 600-block of Watt Street following a robbery.

An armed man threatened two store clerks before grabbing an undisclosed amount of cash and fleeing the scene.

Neither clerk was injured in the incident.

Police are looking for a Caucasian man in his late 20s, standing 5-foot-10 with blond hair.
