Woman killed, 3 injured in northeast Edmonton crash

Man, 25, charged with impaired driving in fatal crash on Manning Drive

A woman is dead, and two men are being treated for life-threatening injuries after a Saturday morning crash on the northeast outskirts of Edmonton.

Just after 6 a.m. a Plymouth Acclaim was travelling northbound on Manning Drive when it struck a westbound Chrysler Intrepid that was travelling westbound on 17th Street N.E.

The 20-year-old woman, who was sitting in the backseat of the Chrysler, was pronounced dead on scene. Police said she was not wearing a seatbelt.

The 24-year-old male driver, and a 19-year-old man, who was a passenger in the front seat, were both taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The 46-year-old male driver of the Plymouth suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The police investigation revealed that the Chrysler allegedly failed to stop at a marked stop sign.

Charges are pending against that driver.

Area roads were closed for much of the day but are now open.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact Edmonton police or Crime Stoppers.
