A deadly week on Manitoba's highways continued Friday afternoon when a 19 year old female from the Municipality of Emerson-Franklin died in a collision with a semi at the intersection of Road 8 North and Highway 75 near Letellier.

RCMP responded to the scene around 4:20 p.m., and determined the female's vehicle was westbound on Road 8 North when it entered the intersection, and was struck by a northbound semi driven by a 44 year old man from the R.M. of Springfield.

The woman was wearing a seat-belt. She was pronounced deceased at the scene. The 44-year-old semi driver was not injured.

Alcohol was not a factor in the collision.

The northbound lanes of Highway 75 were closed for about four hours Friday evening while the investigation took place.

Morris RCMP, along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist, continue to investigate.
