On February 19, 2024, at 7:00 pm, RCMP officers from Stonewall / Headingley and RCMP Traffic Services responded to a report of a three-vehicle collision on Highway 3, located approximately four kilometres south of Oak Bluff.

Investigators have determined that a pickup truck, being driven by a 32-year-old female from Sanford, was travelling southbound on Highway 3 when she collided into the rear of another southbound vehicle, being driven by a 20-year-old male from Reinland.

The vehicle that was struck was then pushed into the northbound lane, where it collided with a northbound vehicle, being driven by a 23-year-old male from Winnipeg.

The 20-year-old male driver, in the southbound vehicle, and the four female passengers (ages 30,27,26,22) from the northbound vehicle were transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The 23-year-old male driver of the northbound vehicle was not physically injured.

The 32-year-old female driver of the southbound vehicle that initiated the collisions, upon entering the ditch in her vehicle, fled the scene on foot.

With the assistance of Police Service Dog Phox, the suspect was tracked to a nearby field, where she was arrested for Impaired Driving Causing Bodily Harm. As she was not dressed for the weather, and had been outdoors for over an hour and a half, she was transported to hospital where she remains.

Stonewall / Headingley RCMP continue to investigate.
