A 67-year-old Lorette woman was airlifted to hospital Tuesday with serious but non-life threatening injuries after a highway collision near New Bothwell.
Emergency crews responded at 9:35 p.m. to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Provincial Road 311 and Road 26 E, one mile northeast of New Bothwell.
A Manitoba RCMP spokesperson said a car travelling east on the highway was struck by a westbound car that failed to see oncoming traffic as it turned left onto the gravel road.
Hanover Fire Chief Paul Wiebe said the occupants of both vehicles required extrication after the head-on collision.
The eastbound driver, a 19-year-old Mitchell woman, along with two one-year-old girls from the westbound vehicle, were transported by ground ambulance to Health Sciences Centre.
A STARS air ambulance transported the driver of the westbound vehicle, a 67-year-old Lorette woman, to HSC.
Alcohol is not considered a factor but RCMP said seatbelts may not have been worn in the westbound vehicle at the time of the collision.
