A serious collision shut down a busy section of St. Mary's Road Saturday morning.

At around 2 a.m., the Winnipeg Police Service posted on social media asking motorists to avoid the area.

A red SUV could be seen with damage to its front end and a pair of shoes in the middle of the road.

Southbound St. Mary's Road was closed at Chesterfield for several hours while police investigated. It has since be reopened.

More details to come.
