On March 8, 2022, at 1:25 pm, officers from Headingley / Stonewall as well as RCMP Central Traffic Services responded to a report of a multi-vehicle collision that occurred in the eastbound lane of Highway 1, located approximately 12 kilometres east of Elie.
The investigation has determined that a vehicle, being driven by a 61-year-old female from Lorette, was travelling eastbound on Highway 1 when it was involved in a multi-vehicle collision due to the extremely poor driving conditions as a result of the winter storm passing through the area. The victim was transported to hospital in critical condition where on March 24, 2022, she succumbed to her injuries.
RCMP are requesting additional witnesses to come forward in relation to this collision or anyone who may have dash cam footage from the area, between the hours of 1:15 pm and 1:35 pm, to contact the Headingley / Stonewall RCMP at 204-888-0358.
Headingley / Stonewall RCMP continue to investigate.
