Police investigate traffic fatality
We continue to investigate a serious single-vehicle collision that has sadly resulted in the death of a 16-year-old boy.
At approximately 7 a.m., today, Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022, a single-vehicle collision occurred near 15 Street and 128 Avenue N.E.
The driver, a 14-year-old boy, was driving a Toyota 4Runner with a 16-year-old male passenger. It is believed the driver made a sharp left turn on a gravel road and lost control of the vehicle, causing it to rotate and leave the roadway, ultimately coming to a rest on its right side.
The passenger suffered serious, life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital where he sadly succumbed to his injuries a short time later. The driver suffered minor injuries and was also transported hospital for treatment and has since been released from hospital. The driver was also arrested for outstanding warrants and remains in custody. Charges are pending against the driver in relation to this collision.
Speed is considered to be a factor in this collision. Alcohol and drugs are not considered to be factors at this time. The Calgary Police Service Traffic Section continues to investigate and is looking to speak with anyone who may have witnessed the collision and are asking them to call the non-emergency number at 403-266-1234 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously through any of the following methods:
