Winnipeg police are considering speed and alcohol to be factors in a crash that injured four people late Friday night.

Police were called to Main Street and Magnus Avenue at around 11:30 p.m. after a Ford F-150 struck another vehicle and proceeded to damage eight others.

Police say the truck hit a Chevrolet S-10 at a high rate of speed after the vehicle turned southbound onto Main from eastbound Aberdeen Avenue. The impact sent the F-150 through a chain link fence, where it rolled over damaging eight other vehicles parked within the lot. Two vehicles parked on the street were also damaged.

The 46-year-old man and 38-year-old woman of the S-10, along with the 44-year-old woman riding as a passenger in the F-150 were taken to hospital in stable condition. The 58-year-old man driving the F-150 was taken to hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable.

Anyone with information regarding the accident is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-6271 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
