WINNIPEG — A woman who died in a Winnipeg collision that sent her nine-month-old baby and several other people to hospital is being remembered as an amazing new mother who contributed to the community.

Jennifer Dethmers, who was 30, died on Saturday when the van she was in was hit by a truck, which police say was speeding away after officers attempted to pull it over.

Dethmers’s partner and stepdaughter were also taken to hospital.

Regina King Honors Ruth Bader Ginsburg as She Accepts Emmy Award: 'Rest in Power, RBG'

  Regina King Honors Ruth Bader Ginsburg as She Accepts Emmy Award: 'Rest in Power, RBG' The Supreme Court Justice died on Friday from complications of metastatic cancer Regina King just added another Emmy statuette to her collection. The actress, 49, took home the award for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her performance in HBO's Watchmen during Sunday's virtual ceremony, beating out nominees Kerry Washington (Little Fires Everywhere), Cate Blanchett (Mrs. America), Octavia Spencer (Self Made: Inspired By The Life Of Madam C.J. Walker) and Shira Haas (Unorthodox).

Police say they were in critical or serious condition.

The two people in the truck were also hospitalized.

Police have charged the truck's driver, 43-year-old Armand Joseph Jr. Chartrand, with a dozen charges, including dangerous driving causing death and driving while suspended.

Family of Dethmers are organizing a vigil for Tuesday at the spot where the collision happened. Relatives say they want to share memories of the kind, compassionate mother.

“She was an amazing loving woman who would drop anything for her family and friends,” said her cousin Jessica Bird. “She was a new mother to an amazing, beautiful baby boy.”

Police Const. Rob Carver said police officers had tried to pull the truck over in a traffic stop, but "the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed.”

Arctic sea ice at second-lowest level in satellite record: scientists

  Arctic sea ice at second-lowest level in satellite record: scientists Satellite pictures show Arctic sea ice is at its second-lowest level since such records began and barely missed breaking the old mark. "There's no going back at this point," said Mark Serreze of the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center. "It's not going to come back up." Although some melting might yet occur, the centre fixed Monday as the day when the overall level of all Arctic sea ice — crucial to northern ecosystems and southern weather patterns — stops shrinking and starts growing again. Satellite images suggest the area at least 15 per cent covered by sea ice is now 3.7 million square kilometres. That's at least 1.

Within seconds, it collided with a van in an intersection about two blocks away, he said.

Manitoba's police watchdog has taken over the investigation. For that reason, Carver said, he was unable to provide details about how the officers attempted to pull the truck over or the speeds reached by the fleeing vehicle.

Generally, it is against police protocol to pursue a fleeing vehicle in the city because the risks are high, he said.

"Fleeing vehicles present a huge risk to not only people in the vehicles, but people in the community, innocent bystanders, as well as our own officers."
