Manitou and Treherne RCMP responded to fatal motor vehicle collision on Friday involving a teenager from the RM of Lorne and a 42-year-old Carman man.
On February 9, at 9:55 pm, officers from the Manitou and Treherne RCMP responded to a two-vehicle collision on Provincial Road 244, approximately two kilometres south of Notre Dame de Lourdes, Manitoba.
Investigators believe a southbound vehicle, being driven by a 17-year-old female from the RM of Lorne, crossed over the centre line and struck a northbound semi-trailer, being driven by a 42-year-old male from Carman. The resulting collision pushed the car and semi-trailer into the east side ditch.
The 17-year-old female was pronounced deceased at the scene. The 42-year-old driver of the semi-trailer and his 46-year-old female passenger were not injured.
Alcohol and speed are not considered factors in the collision.
PR 244 was closed for several hours.
Officers from the Manitou RCMP along with an RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist continue to investigate.
