Jasper rollover victims were from Edmonton, Saskatchewan and India

  • Jul. 20, 2020 1:30 p.m.

Jasper RCMP have shed some light on the identity of the three people killed in the Ice Explorer rollover on the Columbia Icefields on Saturday.

Police say they are a 24-year-old female from Canoe Narrows, Sask.; a 28-year-old female from Edmonton; and a 58-year-old male from India.

The names of the victims will not be released.

Efforts are currently underway to remove the Ice Explorer vehicle; however, it may take several days, say police.

The removal of the vehicle is a large undertaking due to the challenges involved with the area where it came to rest.

The RCMP must also protect the physical integrity of the vehicle pending its examination as part of the investigation.

At this time, Alberta RCMP are unable to confirm the cause of the rollover. However, the RCMP collision reconstructionist is able to confirm that there is no evidence that a rock slide caused the incident.

As of late Sunday, RCMP were able to confirm that of the remaining occupants who were critically injured, only four were still considered to be in critical, but in stable condition. One occupant was in serious but stable condition.
