Pedestrian seriously injured in northeast collision

We continue to investigate a collision that occurred at the intersection of 16 Avenue N.E. and Edmonton Trail N.E.

At approximately 4:15 p.m., on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2024, we responded to reports of a single vehicle collision involving a pedestrian.

At the time of the incident, it is believed a 68-year-old woman was crossing 16 Avenue N.E. when she was struck by a vehicle. Members of our Traffic Section determined the woman was walking southbound through the intersection when a Kenworth construction truck, also heading southbound on Edmonton Trail N.E., turned westbound on 16 Avenue N.E. and collided with the woman.

The woman was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition. The 46-year-old driver and 42-year-old passenger of the truck were uninjured and remained at the scene.

It is not believed alcohol, drugs or excessive speed were factors in this collision.
