Manitoba's police watchdog is investigating a crash that happened last week near Prawda.

On Tuesday at approximately 5:25 pm, Steinbach and Falcon Beach RCMP received a report of a motor vehicle collision along the Trans Canada Highway in the Rural Municipality of Reynolds. 

The initial investigation has determined that a vehicle was traveling west along the Trans Canada Highway when a second vehicle entered the highway from a parked position, resulting in a collision.

The 22-year-old male driver of the westbound vehicle, from Alberta, was transported to local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The second vehicle contained two on-duty Winnipeg Police Service officers. They were transported to Winnipeg hospital, where they were treated for injuries sustained and released.

The collision was reported to the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba, which has determined it will take a monitoring role in the investigation.

Manitoba RCMP also continue to investigate.
