Edmonton, Alberta – EPS Major Collision Investigation Section (MCIS) is investigating a fatal collision that occurred this morning (Oct. 28, 2020) on Lessard Road.
Just after 7:30 a.m. SW Division officers responded to a report of a minivan traveling eastbound on Lessard Road being struck by an object that came off a semi-tractor unit.
The 36-year-old female driver of the minivan was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.
Preliminary investigations have determined that an eight-wheel converter dolly separated from the semi-tractor unit and struck the driver’s side of the van. The semi-tractor unit was traveling westbound on Lessard Road and the dolly crossed the center median into opposing traffic, colliding with the van.
MCIS continues to investigate and charges are pending against the 66-year-old male driver of the semi-tractor unit.
This is Edmonton’s 10th traffic fatality of 2020.
