3 people taken to hospital after crash on southern outskirts of Edmonton

Three people were taken to hospital on Tuesday afternoon following a collision involving a dump truck and a Ford Fusion car on the southern outskirts of Edmonton.

The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of 50 Street and 41 Avenue S.W., police said in an update Wednesday.

The three people in the car — a 32-year-old woman, a 29-year-old woman, and a 13-year-old boy — were all taken to hospital.

The teenager, who was transported by STARS to the Stollery Children’s Hospital, remained in serious but stable condition on Wednesday. The condition of the two women was not disclosed.

Police said the 32-year-old man driving the dump truck suffered minor injuries.

The Global 1 news helicopter spotted the collision, where a STARS Air Ambulance helicopter was seen in a field after it landed there to help. Other emergency vehicles were also at the scene.

The road was closed for several hours as a result. Police have not said what they believe may have led to the crash.
