Feb. 11, 2020
CALGARY—Alberta’s police watchdog says a fatal collision in Calgary that killed a man and seriously injured an off-duty police officer involved an SUV that had been reported stolen.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team, known as ASIRT, says police tried to stop the vehicle an early Monday, but the driver took off.
A short time later, the SUV collided with a pickup truck driven by an off-duty police officer coming home from a night shift.
The agency says a 21-year-old man died at the scene and the officer was sent to hospital with serious injuries.
ASIRT says its investigation will try to determine whether the actions of any police officer caused or contributed to the man’s death.
Anyone who was in the area at the time of the crash is asked to contact the provincial agency.
