5 naked people arrested in crash south of Edmonton


Five people, who were not wearing any clothes, have been arrested following a two-vehicle crash in Nisku on Monday.

The RCMP said it happened on Township Road 510 at around 9:45 a.m. Nisku is about a 30-minute drive south of Edmonton.

Police said a preliminary investigation led them to believe the collision was not accidental. Investigators also believe drugs and alcohol could be factors in the collision.

They said five people, all from one of the vehicles and all naked at the time, were taken to hospital and are in police custody. At the time of the crash, the temperature was about -8 C in Nisku.

On Monday afternoon, RCMP Cpl. Laurel Scott said the investigation was “convoluted” and still in its infancy. The Leduc general investigation section, forensic identification section, criminal collision investigation team and the collision analyst were all working on the file.


Police said more information was expected to be released on Tuesday.

Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact Leduc RCMP.
