Police say the 32-year-old driver from Winnipeg was heading east when he also rolled his pickup truck into the ditch, not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the truck. He died on scene as well.

Shortly after at about 11:15 p.m., Steinbach RCMP were called to a two-car crash on Hwy. 52 about 2 kms west of Steinbach at Bristol Road.

Police say they believe a southbound vehicle was struck by a westbound vehicle in the intersection. The driver of the southbound car, a 37-year-old woman from Mitchell, died at the scene. A passenger in the westbound vehicle was taken to hospital with serious injuries.
