A 62-year-old woman, who was rushed to hospital after her motorcycle collided with a pickup truck on Monday afternoon, has died.

RCMP said the woman was driving on Highway 59 around 3:40 p.m. when the truck drove across her path from Oak Grove Road, about eight kilometres south of Winnipeg. The motorcycle collided head-on with the side of the truck.

The woman was sent to hospital where she later died from her injuries.

The driver and lone occupant of the pickup truck, a 16-year-old boy from the nearby community of Grande Pointe, had minor injuries.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the collision, RCMP said.

The crash is still under investigation.
