The driver and passenger of the truck – both from Winnipeg and in their early 30s – as well as three young children, were all taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor, but RCMP continue to investigate with the help of a forensic collision reconstructionist.
