Deceased in head-on-crash were Elkhorn man, Winnipeg man

A 65-year-old Elkhorn man has been identified as one of the two people killed over the weekend in a head-on highway crash near Neepawa. A passenger in his truck, a 50-year-old woman, was hurt in the crash.

The other man killed was a 77-year-old from Winnipeg.

Police say that the Elkhorn man was driving east on Highway 16 in a 2006 Chevrolet truck when it collided head-on with a 2007 Dodge Caravan that was headed west.

The Winnipeg man behind the wheel of the Caravan was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Elkhorn man was taken from the scene in an ambulance, but later succombed to his injuries. The woman's injuries were described as minor.

The crash happened about 1 p.m. on Saturday, and Neepawa RCMP say that they continue to investigate, with the help of an RCMP Traffic Analyst.

The weather was clear and sunny at the time, and there was no ice on that section of the highway.

Neepawa mayor Ken Waddell said that he had seen a picture of the crash. 

"The vehicles met semi head-on with the wheels locked," he said Sunday. "Debris from the vehicles stretched 100 yards before the vehicles came to rest."
