Child injured in northeast collision

Our Traffic Section is investigating a collision that occurred yesterday in the northeast community of Temple, resulting in serious injuries to a child.

At approximately 7:10 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2023, we were called to the 6800 block of Temple Drive N.E. for reports of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian.

It is believed that at the time of the collision, a six-year-old pedestrian was on the north side of the road. There were parked vehicles along the side of the road, adjacent to the curb.

At the same time, a Ford Expedition, driven by a woman in her 30s, was travelling westbound on Temple Drive N.E. The child crossed between two parked vehicles and stepped into the roadway, into the path of the Expedition, and was struck by the front right corner of the vehicle.

The child sustained serious injuries and was transported to hospital. The driver of the Expedition was not injured and remained at the scene.

Speed, alcohol and drugs are not considered factors in the collision.

Our Traffic Section continues to investigate, and anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
