Major collision officers investigating early moring collision on 91 Street

For Immediate Release: 04-Jan-2019 @ 4:31 PM
MRU #: TR19R002

The EPS Major Collision Investigation Section (MCIS) was called out to a two-vehicle collision this morning on 91 Street.

At approximately 2:15 a.m. today, Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, police were dispatched to the northbound lanes of 91 Street, north of Edwards Drive SW, on the report of a collision. Upon further investigation officers determined a black Ford F-150, operated by a 58-year-old male, was travelling southbound in the northbound lanes of 91 Street at a high rate of speed. A black Kia Soul, operated by a 28-year-old female, was travelling northbound on 91 Street approximately 150 meters north of Edwards Drive at the same time, when the two vehicles collided.

Witnesses at the scene provided first-aid assistance to both drivers until EMS arrived. Both drivers were treated and transported to hospital by EMS with non-life-threatening injuries.

Although the investigation is in its early stages, MCIS investigators believe impairment was a factor in this collision with respect to both drivers. Investigators also believe the F-150’s speed played a role.

The investigation continues.

Anyone with information about this collision asked 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.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
