Edmonton police are investigating a collision in the city’s northeast that left a 20-year-old woman dead and two men in hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The two-vehicle crash happened just before 6:15 a.m. Saturday in the area of 17 Street and Manning Drive.

Police said a Plymouth Acclaim was travelling northbound on Manning Drive when it struck a westbound Chrysler Intrepid that was travelling on 17 Street.

“The investigation revealed that the Chrysler allegedly failed to stop at a marked stop sign and was struck by the northbound Plymouth,” police said in a news release Saturday.

The 46-year-old male driver of the Plymouth suffered non-life threatening injuries.

EMS treated and transported the 24-year-old male driver and 19-year-old male front passenger of the Chrysler to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

A 20-year-old female rear passenger, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Charges are now pending against the driver of the Chrysler.
