The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) is investigating a serious collision on Groat Road that sent a woman to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At around 10 a.m. today, Saturday, Sept. 16, 2023, EPS Major Collision officers were dispatched to a single-vehicle collision that occurred on Groat Road. It was reported to police that the driver of a Mini Cooper was travelling northbound on Groat Road, just passing 115 Avenue toward the bend in the road, when it subsequently collided with a tree on the east curb. 

The 43-year-old male driver and a four-year-old child who was secured in a car seat in the rear of the vehicle, sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The other rear passenger, a 43-year-old female, is in life-threatening condition.  

Neither speed nor alcohol were factors in this collision. Major Collision officers continue to investigate. 

Investigators are asking anyone with dashcam footage of the collision to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250
