The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate a triple fatality collision, with charges pending.
At approximately 7:40 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 30, 2013, a Dodge Neon was travelling east on the 3900 block of 17 Avenue S.W., when it lost control, crossed over a painted median and struck a Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling west on 17 Avenue. The Dodge Neon spun off the roadway and into a concrete wall bordering the CTrain line.
When police arrived on scene they found a 32-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man deceased at the scene. A 35-year-old male passenger was transferred to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. All three were passengers of the Dodge Neon. The 47-year-old male driver is in hospital with serious injuries.
The four occupants of the Jeep, women between the ages of 47 and 85, were taken to hospital and later released.
Excessive speed and alcohol in connection with the Neon are believed to be factors in this collision.
