The RCMP is releasing more details into a collision which closed parts of Highway 1 near Prawda late last month – and they say it involved two on-duty Winnipeg Police officers.

The Manitoba RCMP is continuing to investigate the collision.

Police say on January 31 at roughly 5:30 p.m., Steinbach and Falcon Lake RCMP received a report of a motor vehicle collision on Highway 1 near Prawda, in the Reynolds, MB area.

The RCMP says a 22-year-old male from Alberta was driving westbound, when a second vehicle entered the highway from a parked position, resulting in the collision.

The Alberta driver was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Occupants of the second vehicle – which contained two on-duty Winnipeg Police Service Officers – also received medical treatment and were released.

The collision has been reported to Manitoba’s Independent Investigations Unit.
