Icy Manitoba roads have claimed the life of a third person in recent days. This time, a 75-year-old woman from Regina is dead.
The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. Friday, when a 1994 Cadillac collided head-on with a 2001 Ford Windstar heading southbound on Highway 59 approximately one mile north of Provincial Road 311 in the RM of Hanover.
The passenger of the Cadillac was taken to the Health Sciences Centre, where she later died. The driver of the car was released by medical personnel on the scene. The driver of the Ford was treated and released for his injuries at St. Anne Hospital. His passenger — a 65-year-old woman from Winnipeg — was taken to HSC, and remains in stable condition.
RCMP say icy roads were a contributing factor in the collision.
The name of the deceased is not being released.
