Two people were killed in separate crashes on Manitoba highways over the weekend.
A 25-year-old Sagkeeng woman was initially struck by a vehicle on Highway 11 in the Sagkeeng First Nation community on Saturday morning. A 48-year-old Rosenort man came upon the scene at around 3:55 a.m. and also hit the same pedestrian, who was lying on the highway. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
RCMP are looking for the driver of the first vehicle and ask anyone with information to contact the Powerview detachment at (204) 367-8728.
At around 11:40 a.m. the same day, a two-vehicle crash occurred on Provincial Road 362, approximately two kilometres north of Dauphin.
A 39-year-old Dauphin man driving a pickup truck was travelling westbound on Municipal Road 147N, when it struck a northbound pickup truck carrying two people. A 55-year-old man driving the second truck and a 50-year-old female passenger, both from Dauphin, were taken to hospital. The passenger suffered life-threatening injuries, while the driver suffered non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the westbound truck was not wearing a seatbelt and pronounced deceased in hospital. Alcohol is not considered a factor.
