Two people were seriously injured in a vehicle crash that happened early Friday morning in southwest Calgary.
Police say the crash happened at the intersection of 17 Avenue and 26 Street S.W. around midnight. A 2015 Subaru WRX, driven by a 26-year-old man, was travelling west on 17 Avenue S.W. as it approached a flashing yellow light on 26 Street S.W.
Meanwhile, a 2007 Honda Civic, driven by a 27-year-old female, was travelling south on 26 Street S.W. as it approached a flashing red light on 17 Avenue S.W.
The Honda and the Subaru entered the intersection at the same time and collided.
The front end of the Subaru hit the front of the Honda's driver's side, and both vehicles spun before coming to a stop.
The driver of the Honda and a 51-year-old male passenger sustained serious injuries.
The driver of the Subaru was not injured.
Calgary police are investigating the incident and say that speed and alcohol appear to have been factors.
