The vehicle had been travelling southbound on Deerfoot Trail over the Calf Robe Bridge when the incident occurred. Police say the impact launched the SUV into the air, causing it to flip multiple times before finally stopping.

Police state that the woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and that alcohol and drugs are being investigated as possible contributing factors to the collision.
