It happened at around 3 a.m. on Highway 59 near Carriere Road. Police say a southbound pickup truck was parked on the highway when it was rear-ended by a southbound SUV.

The 24-year-old Alberta man in the truck was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A 16-year-old boy from Ile-des-Chenes, Manitoba was driving the SUV at the time. His 16-year-old male passenger, also from Ile-des-Chenes, and another 16-year-old boy from St. Adolphe, were also sent to hospital.

RCMP say visibility in the area was reduced at the time due to fog, but alcohol is also considered a factor.
