A 10-year-old girl from Grunthal, Manitoba is in critical condition after being struck by a van while riding her bike.
The crash happened Wednesday just before 9 p.m. on Highway 216 when the southbound vehicle hit the child just outside of Grunthal.
She was transported to hospital by STARS air ambulance, where she remains. RCMP say she was wearing a helmet at the time.
The 44-year-old driver of the van remained on scene and is cooperating with investigators.
Alcohol does not appear to be a factor and police are continuing to investigate.
