Police oversight agency to investigate fatal hit and run in Calgary

CALGARY — An agency that investigates police actions is investigating after a fatal hit and run involving a stolen vehicle in Calgary.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team will investigate the circumstances leading up to the fatal collision on Thursday.

ASIRT says an officer of the Tsuu T’ina Nation Police Service attempted to stop a suspicious truck that was seen speeding.

The truck failed to stop, left the First Nation's land and went into Calgary travelling in the wrong lane, hitting a car head-on and killing that car's driver.

Calgary police have taken two people from the truck into custody and they are searching for a third suspect.

The identity of the dead person will not be released until next-of-kin are notified.
