Slick Roads Blamed in Two Crashes South of Brandon

RCMP Crest LogoSlippery roads are being considered a factor in two collisions on Highway 10 about six kilometres south of Brandon on Tuesday evening.

RCMP responded at around 8:30 p.m. to a two-vehicle crash involving a northbound Ford F-250 pickup truck and a southbound Pontiac Sunfire.

Police say the 21-year-old woman driving the pickup lost control and crossed into the southbound lane, where she struck the Sunfire, also being driven by a 21-year-old woman.

The driver of the Sunfire was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

While at the scene, RCMP found that a GMC Sierra pickup truck parked on the side of Highway 10 had been rear-ended by a Ford Taurus.

The pickup was unoccupied at the time as the driver was assisting the occupants of the first collision.

The 26-year-old man driving the Taurus was cleared medically at the scene.
