Man dies after pickup truck crashes into concrete divider: Manitoba RCMP

One person is dead after a crash on the Perimeter Highway near Lagimodiere Boulevard just outside Winnipeg.

Early Thursday morning, RCMP were told about a vehicle driving eastbound in the westbound lane on the highway, officers said. Not long after, Mounties said they got a call about a crash there.

Authorities said a pickup truck passed a median separating the lanes, then crossed the westbound lanes into a concrete divider at “what appeared to be a high rate of speed.”
