17-Year-Old Dies in Collision With a Semi

WINNIPEG, MB - A 17-year-old girl died in a collision with a semi last evening on Provincial Road 244, approximately two kilometres south of Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba.

Manitou and Treherne RCMP responded to the collision around 9:55 PM. Police believe a southbound vehicle, being driven by the 17-year-old girl from the RM of Lorne, crossed over the centre line and struck a northbound semi-trailer, being driven by a 42-year-old male from Carman. The resulting collision pushed the car and semi-trailer into the east side ditch.

The 17-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene. The 42-year-old driver of the semi-trailer and his 46-year-old female passenger were not injured.

RCMP said that alcohol and speed are not considered factors in the collision.
