Rollover closes highway near Melita

An SUV has rolled over into the ditch near Melita, closing Highway 83 north of the town. Police say that emergency personnel are on the scene but that the extent of any injuries isn't yet known. There are reports that the SUV ended up upside-down in a water-filled ditch, but RCMP couldn't confirm that.

Traffic is being rerouted around the crash. Highway 83 is closed between Highway 345 and Highway 2 while the rollover is investigated.

Many other highways in the region remain closed due to flooding and the same stretch of highway was closed for four days earlier this month.

The crash happened just past 1 p.m. on Wednesday.
