Officers from the Major Collision Investigation Section of the Edmonton Police are investigating after a 68-year-old woman died following a “serious collision” earlier this afternoon.

According to a release, at approximately 1:30 pm on Tuesday, November 12, police were called to the Aurum Road exit at Anthony Henday Drive on the report of a serious collision.

“It was reported that a 68-year-old female operating a 2005 Honda Accord took the Aurum Road exit and was travelling south in the northbound lanes of Anthony Henday Drive, when the Accord collided with a 2014 Ford F-150 travelling northbound,” said the release.

“The female driver of the Accord was pronounced deceased on scene and the 43-year-old male driver of the F-150 was transported to hospital by paramedics, where he remains with non-life-threatening injuries.”
