2 women are dead after separate collisions in Edmonton this weekend

Edmonton police are investigating two separate collisions that left two women dead this weekend.

On Friday a 19-year-old female was killed in what police believe may have been a street-racing incident. The woman, who was driving alone, was travelling southbound on Calgary Trail. Upon approaching 55 Avenue, the vehicle lost control.

The car hit a curb and collided with a concrete bus bench. The driver was ejected out of the vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene. Police said she was not wearing her seatbelt and excessive speed was a factor in the collision.

On Saturday, police responded to a collision at 76 Street and 154 Avenue. It was reported that a GMC Sonoma was travelling westbound on 154 Avenue when the front passenger side of the vehicle was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado.

A 24-year-old female passenger died on the scene. A 22-year-old male driver was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Charges are currently pending against the driver.
