At approximately 7:35 p.m. this evening, Saturday, November 19, 2022, West Branch patrol officers responded to a collision call between a pedestrian and two vehicles on 170 Street near 95 Avenue.
It was reported to police that the pedestrian was jaywalking across the northbound lanes of 170 Street and then across into the southbound lanes of 170 Street when he was struck by a 2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara in the last lane. The male was then struck a second time in the adjacent (third) lane by a 1999 Honda Civic.
Paramedics treated and transported the male to hospital where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.
The investigation is ongoing at this time, though speed and impairment are not considered to be factors in the collisions.
EPS Major Collision Investigations Section has since taken over the investigation.
Investigators would like to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the collisions and/or has dashcam video. Anyone with information about this collision is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone.
