Fatal Crash on Henderson Highway

WINNIPEG - A two vehicle collision on Henderson Highway has claimed the life of an 82 year-old man.

The accident occurred at about 4:45 P.M. yesterday on Henderson Highway at the north Perimeter exit ramp.

After investigating, it has been determined that a vehicle, being driven by an 82-year-old man from the RM of East St. Paul, was heading south on Henderson Highway when it attempted to take a left-hand turn onto the north Perimeter exit ramp. The vehicle was subsequently struck by a northbound vehicle being driven by a 58-year-old man, also from the RM of East St. Paul.

The 82-year-old driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was transported to hospital with life-threatening injuries and later pronounced deceased. The 58-year-old male driver, who was wearing his seatbelt, suffered only minor injuries.

It appears at this time that the driver of the vehicle attempting to turn onto the exit ramp, failed to yield the right of way. Alcohol is not a factor in the collision.

East St. Paul RCMP, along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist, continue to investigate.
