The 78-year-old male was pronounced deceased on scene. His passenger, a 74-year-old female from Warren was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the truck, a 33-year-old male, his passenger, a 32-year-old female along with three young children, all from Winnipeg, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
