Steinbach woman killed in collision
A Steinbach driver, attempting to avoid debris on the highway, was killed when her vehicle collided with a pickup on Tuesday morning.
RCMP say the 26-year-old woman was eastbound on Highway 52 in the RM of La Broquerie when she attempted to avoid what was likely a tarp on the road.
“She lost control of her vehicle and collided with a westbound pickup truck, with four occupants,” they said in a Wednesday morning press release.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
The male driver of the pickup truck, 28, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The three other occupants of the truck were not injured.
Steinbach RCMP along with a forensic collision reconstructionist, continue to investigate.
