The Calgary Police Service is investigating a fatal collision that killed a man at a bus shelter at 17 Avenue and 36 Street S.E. Sunday morning.

Officers said a Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by a man in his 70s was travelling north on 36 Street S.E. when he mounted the east curb while crossing the intersection at 17 Avenue S.E.

The truck continued driving along the curb and rubbed the wall of a business before hitting a nearby bus shelter.

According to a CPS news release on Monday morning, the truck also hit a man in his 40s. The person had already died when police arrived on the scene just after 9:30 a.m.
