RCMP are on scene of what they’re calling a serious collision on a Manitoba highway.

Police said the crash happened on Highway 6 near St. Laurent, about 88 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.

STARS Air Ambulance said they were dispatched to the area just before 8 a.m. , but stood down shortly after because they were no longer medically required.

Officials said traffic near the crash site is being rerouted. The public is asked to avoid the area.

More to come.
