The Calgary Police Service Traffic Unit is investigating a fatal collision in southeast Calgary.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., on Friday, June 23, 2023, we were called for reports of a vehicle collision that occurred in the westbound lane of Peigan Trail S.E., near 52 Street S.E.

At this time, it is believed a female in her 20s was travelling eastbound on Peigan Trail S.E. in a black Jeep Liberty and crossed the centre line into the path of oncoming traffic.
