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.
