Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of an Alberta woman in a crash that killed two men and injured a woman in April.

SUNDRE — Police have issued a warrant for the arrest of an Alberta woman in a crash that killed two men and injured a woman in April.

Sundre RCMP say they have charged 37-year-old Jennifer Black with six counts of alcohol-impaired related offences causing death and injury.

Black is also charged with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death and injury.

On April 5, police were called to a single vehicle collision on Highway 22 near township road 340.

Perry Vollmer, who was 57, and Brian Schrader, who was 65, were both killed in the crash, while a 50-year-old woman is still in hospital recovering from her injuries.

Mounties say alcohol, speed, and driver distraction were factors in the crash and ask anyone with information on Black’s whereabouts to call them.
