Second person dies following collision near Superstore parking lot

Second person dies following collision near Superstore parking lot”

A second person has died after the vehicle she was in was struck by a pickup truck near the entrance to a Superstore parking lot in southeast Calgary.

"He is going to be helped by our Victim's Assistance Unit in due course", said Acting Sergeant Rob Lewis with the Calgary Police Service.

It's believed that a 2007 Mack Model 600 garbage truck, operated by a 58-year-old man, was picking up waste from a large bin located in the parking lot.

They say the woman was knocked down as the truck was backing up and dragged a short distance before being run over. The driver saw the woman laying on the ground after he turned the truck around in the lot.

The driver of the auto, a man in his 20s, died at the scene.

Police have determined the deceased was not an employee of Cruise Canada, the business that owns the lot, but have not pieced together what she was doing in the area.

The employer of the driver of the black pick-up truck issued a statement Thursday calling the accident "an unexpected and unfortunate tragedy".

A collision reconstruction team was called in to determine what happened.

An official confirmed Friday afternoon that she had died.

The Calgary Police Service Traffic Section continues to investigate the collision. "All of our drivers are given extensive safety training".
