A Metro III aircraft operated by Perimeter Aviation was conducting flight PAG959 from Gods River, MB (CZGI) to Thompson, MB (CYTH) with only the 2 flight crew members onboard. Approximately 40 nautical miles south east of CYTH, the flight crew advised
ATC of a low oil pressure indication on the left engine, notifying that the engine may need to be shutdown. No emergency was declared, but ARFF was put on standby. Upon landing on runway 24 with both engines operating, the aircraft veered to the right and exited the runway. The left main gear and nose gear collapsed, and the propellers contacted the ground. The aircraft came to rest north of the runway in the snow. The pilot and co-pilot were taken to hospital with minor injuries. The aircraft sustained substantial damage to the fuselage, propellers, landing gear, and right wing.
