LETHBRIDGE, AB – A 60-year old woman suffered serious, life-threatening injuries in a pedestrian collision in west Lethbridge Saturday morning (Sep. 11).

Police responded to the crash around 10:30 a.m. along University Dr W, at the intersection of Riverstone Blvd W and Macleod Dr W. The woman was transported to a Calgary hospital for treatment.

The YMCA of Lethbridge has confirmed in a written statement that that the woman was volunteering for the Len Herring Legacy Ride when she was hit by a vehicle while setting up a water station.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to the volunteer and their family,” said YMCA CEO, Jennifer Petracek-Kolb. “The YMCA community is close knit, and this terrible event has impacted us all.”

There’s no further information at this time if any arrests have been made, or if charges are being laid. Updates will be posted once they are made available.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
