WINKLER – Nine people are in hospital after two vehicles crashed south of Winkler Sunday afternoon.
Just after noon, an SUV heading north on Highway 32 smashed head-on into a southbound car.
A 37-year-old woman and an 11-year-old boy from the SUV are in critical condition in a Winnipeg hospital.
Two adults, two teens and three kids under the age of ten were taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
Mounties are still working to figure out why the collision happened but have ruled out alcohol as a factor.
