One person was killed and three others were in hospital after a direct collision between an ambulance and an SUV in Manitoba.

The ambulance transported a patient to Winnipeg from Neepawa around 5:30 Thursday, when the accident occurred on Highway 16, director of Prairie Mountain emergency medical services Louise Stitt said.

One person from the SUV died, said RCMP Cpl. Julie Courchaine, noted "poor visibility and road conditions" in the area.

Two paramedics and patients at the ambulance were at the hospital in Neepawa, Stitt said.

Manitoba Highways has closed part of Highway 16 between Neepawa and Gladstone, from Provincial Road 352 to Road 74 North.

The RCMP asks motorists to use the Trans-Canada Highway instead.
