Part of the two-lane section on Highway #1 was closed for about three hours earlier this morning after a head-on collision 1 km west of Falcon Beach.

RCMP say a car was travelling eastbound at approximately 3:24 a.m. when the driver crossed the center line and collided with an oncoming westbound SUV.

Three people from the car needed to be extricated by the jaws of life and were taken to Lake of the Woods District Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The occupants of the SUV were transported to Steinbach Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not a factor in the collision, and police continue to investigate.
