2 killed, 2 injured in 2-vehicle crash on Spruce Meadows Trail in Calgary

Two people were killed and two were critically injured after a two-vehicle crash in Calgary on Monday, according to police.

Officers responded to a head-on collision between a pickup truck and sedan at James Mckevitt Road S.W. and Spruce Meadows Trail S.W. after 6:30 p.m.

Two car passengers — a man and a woman, both seniors — were pronounced dead at the scene, EMS said.

Because of the car driver’s injuries and the time it took to get her out, EMS said the rare call was made to have STARS Air Ambulance respond inside city limits. She was airlifted to hospital in critical condition, EMS said.

The truck driver was taken to hospital in serious condition but officials said was he later upgraded to stable status, EMS said.
