A two-vehicle collision on Provincial Road 306, in Manitoba, has claimed the lives of two Winkler residents.
Manitoba RCMP say the crash Friday night (8th) involved a southbound vehicle, occupied by a 20-year-old Altona woman and another 20-year-old female, and a northbound motorcycle, occupied by a 54-year-old male and 53-year-old female, both from Winkler.
The collision was head-on after the southbound vehicle hit the shoulder of the roadway – in the RM of Rhineland – and over corrected, causing the accident.
The 20-year-old passenger in the vehicle suffered only minor injuries.
Mounties say alcohol was not a factor in the collision and both occupants in the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts.
