A single-vehicle crash on the University of Manitoba campus closed the intersection at University Crescent and Chancellor Matheson Road on Friday.

A GMC pickup truck collided with an outdoor stairway at the corner of the busy streets. Winnipeg police say it happened at 3:20 a.m. when the vehicle was travelling eastbound on Chancellor Matheson at a high rate of speed.

U of M campus security spotted three individuals fleeing from the scene, but they have since been identified.

Damage to the front end of the pickup was extensive, but no one was injured. A concrete barrier meant to prevent vehicles from entering the pedestrian area was taken out in the crash. video
