|There was a fatal collision in Steinbach Thursday afternoon.
It happened at the intersection of Highway #12 and #52 shortly after 2:30pm. RCMP Staff Sergeant Davy Lee says a semi truck hauling hogs was making a right hand turn onto Highway #52 when it struck a cyclist crossing that highway.
Staff Sergeant Lee says an 18 year-old woman died at the scene. She is from the Steinbach area but her name has not been released. The driver of the semi, a man from Mitchell, was not hurt.
Lots of questions need to be asked and answered. I feel for the family and friends. It does indicate that we are not a cycling friendly city yet, but need to keep working at making Steinbach one.
Be careful out there!
