Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in a crash early Saturday that killed two people in northeast Calgary.
According to Calgary police, at approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday, a 2009 Toyota Corolla driven by a 42-year-old man, was attempting a turn from southbound Metis Trail NE on to eastbound 128 Avenue. A black 2012 Hyundai, driven by a 21-year-old man driving northbound on Metis Trail hit the Toyota.
Two female passengers, a 65-year-old and 31-year-old, died at the scene, police said. The Toyota’s driver and a 70-year-old male passenger were taken to hospital in life-threatening condition.
The Hyundai driver had no injuries, police said.
