Man, 59, dies in highway crash near Elie
A 59-year-old man died after his vehicle crashed with a semi-trailer on the Trans-Canada Highway near Elie, Man., on Thursday.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene while a 54-year-old woman who was a passenger in the car was rushed to a hospital in Winnipeg with serious injuries.
She is now listed in stable condition.
Both the man and woman are from Winnipeg, RCMP said.
The 47-year-old man driving the semi was not injured.
It appears poor weather conditions — blowing snow and icy roads — were a contributing factor in the crash, RCMP said.
