Police investigate early-morning collision on Stoney Trail
We are investigating a single-vehicle collision that occurred this morning in the city’s northeast.
Today, Wednesday, July 19, 2023, at approximately 2:40 a.m., we were called to the area of Stoney Trail N.E. and Harvest Hills Boulevard N.E. for reports of a collision.
At the time, it is believed a 2012 silver Ford Focus, operated by a 36-year-old man, was travelling eastbound on Stoney Trail N.E.
The vehicle began to veer off the roadway to the right, and struck one of three support beams supporting a road sign. The vehicle then began rotating before coming to rest on the shoulder of Stoney Trail N.E.
The driver suffered serious injuries as a result of the collision, and was transported to hospital.
A construction excavator was parked off the right shoulder of Stoney Trail N.E, close to the vehicle’s path of travel, but was not a factor in the collision.
Alcohol or drugs are not believed to be a factor in the collision. Excessive speed is being investigated as a factor in the collision.
Our Traffic Section continues to investigate the circumstances of the collision. Anyone with information or dashcam footage of the 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:
