A stretch of the southeast leg of Anthony Henday Drive was closed Friday night, after a single-vehicle crash left a young woman dead.
At around 9 p.m., a blue 2014 Hyundai Accent ended up in the ditch on the Henday westbound, under the 91 Street overpass.
Edmonton police said the vehicle drifted off of the road and collided with the centre concrete bridge pillar.
The 26-year-old woman driving the car died on scene, according to police and AHS. She was the only person in the car.
Debris from the heavily-damaged car could be seen strewn in the ditch and firefighters had covered the top of the car.
A stretch of the road was closed briefly while police investigated. The cause of the collision is not known.
Edmonton police said 122 collisions were reported over a 24-hour period, from 5 p.m. Friday to the same time on Saturday.
Friday’s crash on the southeast leg of the Henday was the only fatal collision. Eight other collisions left people with injuries, while another 22 crashes were hit-and-runs.
