Two people are dead after the motorcycle they were riding on crashed near Elma, Man., Sunday morning.

A 61-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were going eastbound on Highway 44 near Highway 11 when they collided with a truck driving westbound.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The two people in the truck, an 88-year-old man and a 62-year-old woman from Winnipeg, suffered minor injuries.

The south junction of Highway 11 and Highway 44 remained closed for hours after the crash.

RCMP will not be releasing the names of the people killed in the crash but did say they were from Pine Falls, Man.

Officers are now investigating.
