A car crash in Calgary on Wednesday night has left one man in the hospital, two others injured, and another in handcuffs.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, a truck and a car collided on Memorial Drive at around 10:45 pm on March 21. The truck rear-ended the car when it was stopped at a red light and pushed it into the 28th Street SE intersection.
