The collision occurred around 2:19 p.m. Sunday afternoon on 103A Street just south of Ellerslie Road. According to a news release Monday, a BMW 335XI travelling southbound at high speeds lost control around a curve, crossed into the oncoming lane and smashed head-on into a Toyota RAV4.

The crash left a 70-year-old woman who was a passenger in the Toyota with life-threatening injuries. The 65-year-old man driving the SUV suffered minor injuries, while the BMW’s 33-year-old driver was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening wounds.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area and witnessed the crash to provide dash cam footage via the EPS Complaint Line.

They also provided a photo of another vehicle of interest: a dark-coloured sedan spotted travelling with the BMW just prior to the collision.

Police believe speed was a factor in the crash but did not provide an estimate for how fast the BMW was travelling.

The woman injured in the crash remains in hospital.

The crash happened just one day after a rush hour smash-up at 109 Street and Jasper Avenue involving a stolen water truck. Several people suffered minor injuries in that crash.
