Police are investigating a crash on Calgary’s ring road Monday night that sent five people to hospital.
AHS told Global News that of the people transported to hospital, two were in critical condition, two were in stable condition and one was taken for precautionary reasons.
Emergency crews were called to a crash on westbound Stoney Trail, just past 52 Street S.E. around 10 p.m. The crash involved a white Ford F-350 and a Subaru Impreza. The truck could be seen lying upside down on the side of the road. Police said the truck went off the road, slid on the grass before rolling on its roof and coming to a stop.
Tuesday afternoon police said the driver of the truck, a 50-year-old man, was taken to hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries. The truck’s passengers — a 37-year-old man, a 23-year-old man and an 18-year-old man — suffered minor injuries.
The male driver of the car, 31, suffered minor injuries, police said in a statement on Tuesday.
Four of the crash victims who were in a truck were taken to Foothills Medical Centre and the one person who was in the Subaru was taken to South Health Campus. All of them are adults, Calgary EMS said.
Police said speed and alcohol are being investigated as factors in the crash.
