Police investigating fatal pedestrian collision in southwest Edmonton

For Immediate Release: 27-Jun-2024 @ 9:40 PM
MRU #: TR24030

The Edmonton Police Service (EPS) is investigating a fatal pedestrian collision that took place earlier this evening in the Allard neighbourhood of southwest Edmonton.

At approximately 5:08 p.m., Thursday, June 27, 2024, Southwest Branch patrol officers responded to a collision involving a truck and three pedestrians in the area of Allard Road SW and Allard Boulevard SW. It was reported to police that a 2019 Ford F150 truck was travelling northbound on Allard Road SW when it stopped quickly at the three-way stop at Allard Boulevard SW. At the same time, an adult woman and her two young children, a boy and a girl, were walking eastbound across Allard Road SW in a marked crosswalk on the southside of the intersection. After briefly stopping, the truck reportedly turned left onto Allard Boulevard SW (westbound), running over the boy and striking the mother and her daughter.

EMS responded, however, the three-year-old boy had already succumbed to his injuries. The 39-year-old woman and seven-year-old girl were treated and transported to hospital by paramedics with non-life-threatening injuries. The 30-year-old male driver of the truck remained on scene and did not report any injuries.

EPS Major Collision Investigations Section (MCIS) is now investigating. Speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors in this collision.
