Grader collision in Edmonton
Edmonton Police are investigating a death which occurred when a small car collided with a grader on Anthony Henday Drive on Oct. 25.
“Just after 6:30 a.m. this morning a small car allegedly rear ended a slow moving grader eastbound on the Anthony Henday between Calgary Trail and 91 Street,” said a press release from the Edmonton Police Service (EPS).
“EPS and EMS (Emergency Medical Services) responded to the collision, however, the 22-year-old male driver of the small car died on scene.”
The eastbound road between 111th and 91st streets was shut down for several hours, but reopened before noon.
“OHS is not investigating because the person who was involved in the car collision was not on duty,” said Alberta Occupational Health and Safety spokesperson Yonathon Sumamo.
