In other police news, there have been 27 motor vehicle collisions since the start of 2005 in the Rainy River District.
The OPP would like to remind motorists to reduce speed, be aware of wildlife on our highways, and always wear your seatbelt. Rapidly changing weather conditions in our northern climate can be a factor in motor vehicle crashes.
