Serious Collision in Southeast
The Calgary Police Service is currently investigating a serious collision that took place earlier today.
At approximately 11:30 a.m., on Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, police were called to a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot in the Douglasdale area. Upon police arrival, witnesses pointed out the vehicle had just left the parking lot and was travelling at a high rate of speed along 130 Avenue S.E.
It is believed the CPS member, in a marked unit, attempted to pull over the truck, by turning on their lights. The truck then fled and the marked unit disengaged. A short distance later, the truck sped through an intersection at 46 Street S.E., against a red light, T-boning a car on the driver’s door and striking another vehicle that had been waiting to turn left in the intersection.
The female passenger and the male driver of the truck both fled the collision scene on foot. The driver was apprehended a short distance away, however, the woman has not yet been located.
Two men in the car were transported to hospital in serious condition, but have since been upgraded to stable.
The passengers of the third vehicle were also transported to hospital as a precaution.
Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) was notified and will be investigating if the actions of the police contributed to the collision.
Anyone who witnessed the collision, or the vehicle in question prior to the collision, is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
