The big tie up on the Trans Canada Highway near Portage la Prairie Tuesday night was because of a car-pedestrian crash.
The pedestrian, a 32 year old man from Grandview, was airlifted to hospital just after 11 o’clock.
He’s in serious but stable condition. Police are still trying to figure out why he was walking on the highway.
The highway was blocked in one direction for a few hours but opened again early Wednesday morning.
