Downtown Collision

The Calgary Police Service Traffic Section is investigating a collision which occurred at the intersection of 9 Avenue and 2 Street S.W., earlier today, Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018.

A white Toyota Rav4 being driven by a 30-year-old man was travelling east on 9 Avenue approaching 2 Street when it sideswiped a motor vehicle exiting a parkade. It then accelerated into the rear of a Dodge Ram that was waiting at the intersection.

The force of the collision caused the Toyota RAV4 to flip onto its roof. EMS and the Calgary Fire Department attended the scene and extracted the driver of the RAV4, where he was transported to hospital in critical condition. His condition was then upgraded to serious, but stable.

Investigators at the scene gathered evidence which leads them to believe that the driver of the RAV4 may have been impaired by drugs.

The investigation is ongoing.
