An Edmonton man is in critical condition after a crash near Steinbach on Wednesday.

Emergency crews raced to Highway 12 at Highway 210 in the RM of Ste. Anne around 10:30 p.m.

There they found a semi-tractor had collided with an SUV. Officers believe the SUV was driving eastbound when it pulled out in front of the tractor.

The tractor hit the SUV’s driver side, causing major damage.

The 68-year-old driver of the SUV was rushed to hospital and airlifted to Winnipeg. He remains in critical condition.

The 41-year-old driver of the semi-tractor was not injured.

Alcohol is considered a factor in the crash, RCMP said.

The investigation continues.
