Man killed in Gladstone-area crash

A 69-year-old man is dead after a crash on a slippery highway near Gladstone. Two other people were injured.

Police say that Richard Gutowski was in a car travelling east on Highway 16, late Friday morning, when the car spun out of control and struck a west-bound pickup.

Gutowski was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two people in the pickup were treated for injuries that they also suffered in the crash.

Police say the highway was closed for about three hours as they investigated the crash, which was about 10 km west of Gladstone, or about 25 km east of Neepawa.

Temperatures around the freezing mark made for treacherous highways throughout southern Manitoba.

uhh

The newspaper article doesn't tell us whether the deceased was wearing a seat belt at the time of the collision. And we aren't told whether he was driving or a passenger. And that front page photograph of the vehicle doesn't show much damage. It sure would be nice to know more details of these motor vehicle incidents.
