Olds Detachment was dispatched to a fatal two vehicle collision West of Olds on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 on Highway 27 at the intersection with Range Road 23.

An investigation indicated a Jeep Grande Cherokee travelling south on Range Road 23 failed to stop at a stop sign and crossed into the path of a west bound Dodge Ram pick up and the pick up struck the driver’s side of the Cherokee.

The driver of the Cherokee was taken from the scene by STARS.  The driver, an area resident, did not survive her injuries.  Her name is not being released.  The driver of the pick up did not sustain any serious injuries.

Both vehicles were occupied by only the drivers who were wearing seatbelts.  Air bags in both vehicles also deployed.

Alcohol is not a contributing factor, weather conditions were favourable for driving and roads were dry at the time of the collision.  No charges are being considered at this time.
