Cops look to pinpoint cause of deadly Neepawa-area crash

RCMP continue to investigate a head-on collision near Neepawa that took the lives of two men.

The crash happened on Saturday shortly before 1 p.m. on Highway 16 east of Neepawa when a westbound 2007 Dodge Caravan collided with an eastbound 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck.

The driver of the Dodge van, a 77-year-old Winnipeg man, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the truck, a 65-year-old Elkhorn man, was transported by ambulance but died from his injuries. A 50-year-old woman who was a passenger in the truck suffered minor injuries.

Neepawa RCMP Sgt. Mark Morehouse said investigators have yet to identify the cause as they await the result of autopsies and the report of an RCMP traffic analyst.

However, he said witnesses have indicated it was the van that crossed the centre line prior to impact. The investigation now focuses on that vehicle and its driver.

Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor. But other possibilities, including whether the van driver was suffering from a medical condition at the time of the crash, haven’t been ruled out at this point.
