“It sounded like four at this moment, I just talked to our dispatch,” RCMP spokesperson Tara Seel told 680CJOB.

“We’re seeing some other collisions in Manitoba but nothing like we’re seeing on the No. 1 right now.”

All four are separate incidents, said Seel, noting that the highway is in “extremely poor” condition.

Southern Manitoba is currently being hit by a spring storm that will bring up to 25 cm of precipitation in some areas.

While no roads in southern Manitoba had been closed Monday, there were numerous reports of slush-covered areas and slippery sections at the Manitoba Highways site map.
