Police investigate fatal pedestrian collision
Police continue to investigate a single-vehicle collision that occurred yesterday in the city’s southeast, sadly resulting in the death of a man.
At approximately 9:25 a.m., on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022, we were called to the intersection of 36 Street and 17 Avenue S.E., for reports of a collision.
A Dodge Ram operated by a man in his 70s was travelling north on 36 Street S.E. The truck crossed the intersection at 17 Avenue S.E., then mounted the east curb. The truck continued moving along the curb, rubbing against the wall of a nearby business, before striking and damaging a bus shelter.
It is believed that as the truck struck the bus shelter, it also struck a man in his 40s, who sustained fatal injuries as a result of being hit.
The driver of the Dodge Ram sustained serious injuries and was transported to hospital where he remains in stable condition.
Speed is considered to be a factor in the collision. A medical incident suffered by the driver of the Dodge Ram is also being investigated as a possible factor in the collision.
The Calgary Police Service Traffic Section continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision. Anyone who may have information or dashcam footage of this incident is asked to contact police at the non-emergency number at 403-266-1234.
