A woman died in a two-vehicle collision on an icy road northwest of Selkirk. The crash severely injured two others.

On Nov. 18, at approximately 7:00 a.m. Selkirk RCMP received a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 8, located south of Meadowdale Road, in the RM of St Andrews.

The preliminary investigation reveals that two pickup trucks, one heading north and the other south, collided head-on while travelling on Highway 8. Road conditions were reported to be extremely icy at the time of the collision.

The other passenger, a 51-year-old woman from Winnipeg, was pronounced deceased on scene. The 32-year-old male driver of the other pickup truck, from Clandeboye, was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
