Multi-vehicle Pedestrian Collision

The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate a serious injury collision between a pedestrian and multiple vehicles that occurred earlier today.

At approximately 2:10 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014, a life-threatening injury collision occurred at the intersection of 60 Avenue and 3 Street S.W.

A 2001 Pontiac Montana minivan, driven by a 41-year-old man, was heading eastbound on 60 Avenue S.W. approaching a stop sign at 3 Street S.W. At the same time, a 2012 Dodge Journey crossover, driven by an 80-year-old woman, was northbound on 3 Street S.W. approaching 60 Avenue, with the right of way.

The Montana failed to stop at the stop sign and struck the Journey. The Journey mounted the curb and struck the driver’s side of a 2007 Nissan Sentra parked in the parking lot, pushing the Sentra into a 2011 Ford Expedition parked beside it. An 84-year-old female passenger had just gotten out of the Sentra when the collision occurred.  The woman was pinned between the Sentra and the Expedition.

The driver of the Montana was not injured. The driver of the Journey sustained minor injuries. The 84-year-old passenger, who was pinned, sustained life-threatening injuries.

Although the Calgary Police Service Traffic Section continues to investigate, speed and alcohol do not appear to have been factors in the collision.

Any witnesses to the accident or the events leading up to it are asked to contact the Traffic Section at 403-567-4000 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
