Manitoba RCMP responded to a collision over the weekend, which has left one dead and two seriously injured.

On Saturday, March 23, at roughly 9:30 p.m., Amaranth RCMP received a report of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 50 at Road 99 North in the RM of Westlake-Gladstone.

Emergency Medical Services provided care to multiple patients when officers arrived on the scene.

Officials say an investigation has determined that a southbound car crossed into the northbound lane, striking the oncoming vehicle head-on.

The driver of the northbound vehicle, a 35-year-old woman from Sandy Bay First Nation, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passenger, a 36-year-old man from Langruth, was seriously injured and transported to hospital.

The 19-year-old male driver of the southbound car from The Pas received life-threatening injuries, and was transported to a hospital in Winnipeg. A two-year-old boy was belted into a car seat and sustained minor injuries. He was transported to a local hospital and has since been released.

The 19-year-old remains in critical condition in the hospital.

The investigation continues.
