Police update on April collision

For Immediate Release:18-Oct-2017 @ 11:26 AM
MRU #:TR17R039

The Edmonton Police Service is updating the public on a collision that occurred earlier this year and resulted in a fatality.

At approximately 1:20 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 22, 2017, Southwest Division officers responded to a two-vehicle collision in the area of 105 Street and 77 Avenue. It was reported that a black 2010 Nissan Sentra was travelling eastbound on 77 Avenue approaching 105 Street when it allegedly drove through a stop sign and collided with a black 2009 Honda CRV travelling northbound on 105 Street through the intersection. The collision allegedly caused the CRV to spin around, mount a nearby curb and collide with a street sign, fence and four other vehicles.

 

EMS responded, treated and transported the 88-year-old male driver of the CRV to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The 36-year-old female driver of the Sentra was not injured.

 

Due to medical complications, the 88-year-old male driver succumbed to his injuries in hospital on Monday, May 1, 2017.

 

As a result of the male driver’s passing, EPS Major Collision Unit assumed the investigation from Southwest Division and the collision was deemed a traffic fatality.

 

Police do not believe alcohol and speed were factors in the collision.

 

The 36-year-old female driver of the Sentra was issued a traffic violation for failing to stop at a stop sign.
