Calgary police are investigating a serious collision that occurred in the early morning of Jan. 28.

Police said the collision occurred in the 1500 block of 36 Street S.E. near 16 Avenue S.E. at around 4 a.m.

According to a news release, a four-door sedan was travelling southbound when it veered to the right side of the road and struck a parked and unoccupied SUV.

The impact forced the SUV forward into another parked and unoccupied vehicle. The sedan rotated around 90 degrees clockwise before it came to a stop, police said.

The Calgary Police Service said the sedan was occupied by the driver, a man in his 50s, and a passenger, a woman in her 30s. None of them were wearing seatbelts.
