Winnipeg police are unsure of the events leading up to the crash as the driver of the yellow truck is not cooperating with police. The driver of the red truck said he noticed the yellow vehicle was proceeding very slowly so he passed it before coming to a stop at the red light.

According to the driver of the red truck, he was suddenly struck from behind, lost control and collided with the building.
