A 51-year-old East St. Paul woman was killed Wednesday night in a head-on collision on Highway 10.
RCMP say the woman driving an SUV pulled out to pass a semi-trailer truck when she collided with an oncoming semi while travelling southbound. The crash happened three kilometres north of Dunseith Port of Entry in the RM of Morton.
The woman was the sole occupant of the SUV and pronounced deceased at the scene. The 61-year-old Deloraine resident driving the semi was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Alcohol is not considered a factor in the collision. The name of the deceased isn’t being released.
