Fatal Hit and Run Collision in Bridlewood

Posted by: Kenny Chan onApril 30th, 2008

An apparent drunk driving accident in the southwest neighborhood of Bridlewood has claimed the life of a 42 year old female. Witnesses at the scene recalled seeing a silver SUV speeding down the residential road. The SUV lost control, hopped a curb and struck three people waiting at a bus stop, one of which was in a wheelchair.

A 30 year old female and a 15 year old male (occupant of the wheelchair) were transported to hospital in non-life threatening condition. An 8 year old was assessed and released. As a result of the injuries suffered in the collision, a 42 year old female was pronounced dead at the scene.

A suspect has since been arrested after a witness followed him fleeing the scene of the accident. Charges are pending as Calgary Police continue their investigation.
