Police investigate fatal single-vehicle collision
We continue to investigate a single-vehicle collision that has left one man dead.
On Monday, Nov. 27, 2023, at approximately 10:40 p.m., we were called to the area of Ogden Road and Bonnybrook Road S.E., for reports of a collision involving one vehicle.
At the time, a small four-door car operated by a man in his early 20s was travelling north on Ogden Road S.E. As the roadway curved to the left near the intersection with Bonnybrook Road S.E., the vehicle continued north, mounting the right curb.
The vehicle started to rotate clockwise, and the driver-side struck a light pole. The pole was dislodged, and the vehicle crossed over Bonnybrook Road S.E., and continued through a wooden fence, before coming to a rest in a nearby vehicle scrapyard.
The driver was transported to hospital in critical condition, but has since succumbed to his injuries.
Speed and alcohol are being investigated as factors in this collision.
Our Traffic Section continues to investigate this incident. Anyone with dashcam footage 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:
