Four people were killed Thursday afternoon after being involved in a head-on crash on Highway 6.

RCMP say the accident happened at about 3:30 p.m. one kilometre north of Lundar, Manitoba.

According to police, a car driven by a Little Saskatchewan First Nation man crossed the centre line travelling southbound and collided with a northbound school bus.

All four occupants of the vehicle, including the driver, a 53-year-old woman from Little Saskatchewan First Nation, a 40-year-old woman and an infant girl from Rosseau River First Nation, were killed.

The school bus was carrying 16 children from Lundar to Lake Manitoba First Nation at the time. All of the children, as well as the bus driver, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are continuing to investigate the crash and have reopened Highway 6 to traffic.
