An RCMP officer and another person are recovering after being involved in a collision on Highway 1.
RCMP Manitoba says that the collision occurred Friday morning just before noon. The officer from the Falcon Lake RCMP detachment was travelling eastbound on Highway 1 in a marked police vehicle when he collided with a vehicle that was initially travelling southbound on Provincial Road 302, and attempting to make a left hand turn onto Highway 1.
The 40-year-old male officer as well as the 21-year-old female from Ste. Genevieve were both transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
