WINNIPEG – Sunday just before midnight, a 17-year-old girl has lost her life in a two car collision on Highway 3.

RCMP from Carman say the two-vehicle collision occurred on Highway 3, located approximately nine kilometres south of Highway 23, in the RM of Roland.

Police believe that a northbound vehicle, being driven by a 17-year-old man from Rosenfeld with a 17-year-old female passenger from Roland, collided head-on with a southbound vehicle, being driven by a 19-year-old man from Winnipeg.

The 17-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene and the two drivers were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is not a factor in the collision and seatbelts were in use.
