Five people were taken to hospital following a serious crash Wednesday evening. 

RCMP say the crash happened around 8:15 p.m. on Raleigh Street, just south of Pritchard Farm Road. 

Witnesses reported that just before the collision, they saw the two vehicles, a grey Nissan pick-up truck and a grey Dodge Ram 1500, driving erratically and speeding on Raleigh Street. RCMP say it was reported that they may have been racing or chasing each other. 

The collision sent both vehicles flying into a nearby field. 

The driver of the Nissan, a 29-year-old male and the occupants in the other vehicle, three males, 37, 30 and 26 and a 23-year-old female, were all taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

There were numerous witnesses to this incident, and police are asking anyone with information or video surveillance to call Selkirk RCMP at 204-482-1222 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

No charges have been laid at this time, and Selkirk RCMP continue to investigate.
