Olds woman killed in collision
An Olds woman has died in a two-vehicle crash west of Olds.
The 60-year-old Olds woman, whose name is not being released, was travelling southbound on Range Road 23 towards Hwy 27 when her vehicle struck a westbound pickup truck on Wednesday at about 4 p.m.
Olds RCMP said the woman’s vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign and crossed into the path of the westbound vehicle. The pickup struck the driver’s side of the woman’s vehicle. Both vehicles came to rest in the southwest ditch of the intersection on their wheels.
Both vehicles’ occupants were wearing seatbelts and the airbags were deployed in both.
STARS Air Ambulance airlifted the woman to the Foothills Medical Centre. When she was in their care, she was in critical condition with life-threatening injuries. She later died of her injuries.
The driver of the pickup did not suffer any serious injuries.
Police said alcohol is not a contributing factor, weather conditions were favourable for driving and roads were dry at the time of the collision.
No charges are being considered at this time.
