By | September 11, 2019

One person is in critical condition after an early-morning crash involving a semi-trailer and SUV in Winnipeg.

The crash, which happened around 3:30 a.m., has also blocked part of a major Winnipeg thoroughfare. All lanes of Logan Avenue are closed just west of McPhillips Street.

A silver SUV is crumpled and shattered behind a semi, parked in the eastbound lanes of Logan at the intersection lights.

Police are expected to be on scene for the entire morning, possibly longer.

The gender and age of the person injured hasn’t been released.

The intersection of Logan and McPhillips is open to traffic. As well, vehicles can use Logan Avenue just east of the intersection.
