There’s been another fatal collision on Manitoba roads within hours of the first one. This time, it has claimed the life of a 22-year-old Winnipeg woman.
The crash happened at 11 p.m. Thursday on Highway 8, south of Highway 27 in the RM of St. Andrews.
The woman was a passenger in a Toyota 4Runner that was travelling southbound on Highway 8, when it proceeded to pass another vehicle. Upon pulling back into the right-hand lane, the SUV lost control and fishtailed, causing it to roll several times.
The driver and a second passenger in the SUV were taken to hospital with unknown injuries. It appears that all occupants were wearing seatbelts at the time.
RCMP say the road was partly snow covered and very slippery.
UPDATE: December 26 — Friends have identified the victim to ChrisD.ca as Kendra Latzkitsch (below).
