A Grand Pointe man is facing impaired driving charges after an accident killed a young Morden woman Sunday.

David Delisle, 49, is charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, refusing to provide a breath sample and drug possession as a result of the two vehicle collision September 9 near Winnipeg.

RCMP were called around 4 a.m. to the accident scene on the south perimeter highway about 1 mile east of St. Annes Road.

RCMP say their initial investigation shows a 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling east in the west bound lanes against traffic when it collided head on with a 2001 Buick Century that was west bound.

The driver of the Buick, a 21-year-old woman from the Morden area, was taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead. Her name was not being released. A 23-year-old male passenger was transported to hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the truck was not injured but was taken into police custody with RCMP saying alcohol was a factor in the collision.

An RCMP traffic collision analyst attended to assist, and police continued to investigate.
