A young boy was transported to hospital following a three-vehicle collision near Ste. Anne Thursday afternoon.

Emergency crews were called over the lunch hour to the intersection of Highway 12 and Provincial Road 210. 

Steinbach RCMP Community Constable Dennis Redikop says their investigation has revealed that a southbound vehicle struck a westbound vehicle that was crossing Highway 12. A southbound semi, travelling behind, was also involved.

This resulted in southbound traffic being backed up beyond the overpass at Ste. Anne. 

Constable Redikop says a male youth was transported to hospital with minor injuries. He was a passenger in the car that crossed Highway 12. The drivers of the other two vehicles were the lone occupants.

Emergency crews had the scene cleared in about thirty minutes.

The matter remains under investigation.
