Prominent defence lawyer Sid Tarrabain is being remembered Tuesday at a memorial service at the Edmonton Islamic Academy.

Tarrabain died Sunday in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 28, just north of Gibbons, in an area where several collisions have happened over the years.

"I hate this highway," said Leah Milligan, who lives near the area.

"I've lived here my entire life and usually it ends in like a car just taking out the fence, and it'll happen two or three times a year. There's a jog in the highway back there and people think they can pass [but] they can't."

Milligan said she won't let her kids wait at the bus stop on the highway.

The RCMP continue to investigate the cause of the crash that killed Tarrabain and injured two others.

According to police, the southbound SUV that Tarrabain was driving collided head-on with a pickup truck pulling a fifth-wheel trailer.

The male driver and the female passenger in the pickup were taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Tarrabain is survived by his wife Sharon and three children. He also leaves behind his mother and nine sisters.
