Early this morning Neepawa RCMP responded to a fatal collision between a westbound SUV and eastbound ambulance on Highway 16. The accident took place between Neepawa and Gladstone. The lone driver of the SUV was a 36-year-old woman from Winnipeg and was pronounced dead on the scene. The 37-year-old male ambulance driver, a 37-year-old female passenger, and a patient are currently in the Neepawa hospital.

Highway 16 was closed for some time this morning. However, it is now open.

RCMP believe poor road conditions were a factor in the collision. Neepawa RCMP along with a Forensic Collision Reconstructionist continue to investigate.
