On September 24th, 2013, at approximately 11:08 a.m., Leduc RCMP, Leduc Integrated Traffic Services Unit and EMS responded to a 911 call of a Semi Tractor Trailer and a small car that collided at the intersection of Highway 21 and Highway 625 in Leduc County. Witness at the scene told officers that a small red Toyota car pulled across the controlled intersection east bound on highway 625 to cross highway 21. The small red Toyota car was struck by a north bound semi-Tractor trailer. The 21 year female driver from Leduc County Alberta (whose name is not being released) was the lone person in the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured in the collision.

Pedestrian Struck by Pick-Up Truck in Calmar Airlifted to Hospital by STARS Air Ambulance Services.
On September 24th, 2013, at approximately 7:10 p.m., Leduc RCMP received a call of a 50 Year old male from Calmar Alberta, that was struck by a passing vehicle while the man crossed 50th street in Calmar. Leduc City and Municipal RCMP, along with EMS, immediately responded to the call. Witnesses told police that the man was crossing the road when struck by a black ¾ ton GMC pick-up, driven by an 86 year old male from Warburg Alberta. At the time of the collision the sun was close to the horizon and made it difficult for the driver of the pick-up truck to see the Calmar man when he entered the roadway. The man sustained head and internal injuries, and was in serious but stable condition when air lifted to the Royal Alex Hospital in Edmonton by STARS Air Ambulance.
The collision is still under investigation by the Leduc RCMP. The name of the victim is not being released at this time.
