Two Traffic Fatalities In Four Days - Charges Laid In One Case While Investigation Continues In The Other

 
 
LETHBRIDGE:  The city's traffic fatality count so far this year has climbed to four as Regional Police continue to investigate one incident and lay charges in another. 

Justice Calvin Krein, 19, of Lethbridge, will be in court October 13th to answer charges of dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death.  The charges relate to a fatal skateboarding  incident on Friday night.  In that case, two-men were riding skateboards while being towed behind an SUV, in the 700-block of Red Crow Boulevard West. One of the borders, 24-year old Jordan Michael Crane, lost his grip and fell and was then stuck by the SUV. Crane was flown to Calgary by STARS where he died of his injuries. The other skateboarder was not injured.

The second fatal in two days happened Monday night at about 8:20. A 62-year-old man was killed in a car-pedestrian collision, at the intersection of 13th street and 7th avenue.  The man was in the crosswalk when he was hit by a south-bound car driven by a 21-year old man from Coaldale.  The victim was taken to the Regional hospital and then flown by Stars to Calgary Foothills hospital, where he also died of his injuries.

According to police, alcohol, drugs and weather don't appear to be factors in Monday night's collision.  The investigation continues and charges are pending.

So far this year, Lethbridge has recorded four traffic fatalities. Two of the incidents involved pedestrian collisions and the other two were motor vehicle collisions. Last year, there were no fatal pedestrian collisions and just two fatal motor vehicle collisions.
