Two people were hurt last night when their car smashed into the back of a parked truck.
Police say at about 9:45 p.m. a Honda Civic drove through the intersection of 52 Street against a red light at a high rate of speed and rear ended a Volvo semi tractor that was parked next to the curb.
The truck did not have an attached trailer and it was pushed forward about three meters
as a result of the collision impact.
The Civic sustained severe damage and both of the vehicle’s occupants had to be extricated by members of the Calgary Fire Department.
The 27-year-old driver of the Civic and her 31-year-old passenger were both seriously hurt.
They were sent to the hospital and remain in serious, but stable condition.
The 62-year-old truck driver was not injured in the collision.
Speed and alcohol are being investigated as factors in the collision, police say.
