Impaired driving charges laid in connection with fatal collision

Lethbridge Police have charged a 24-year-old female in connection with a collision that claimed the life of a 25-year-old male.

On May 2, just before 3 a.m., police responded to a single vehicle rollover near Pavan Park. Upon arrival, officers located a vehicle on its roof, three uninjured females and a critically injured male who was still inside the vehicle. One of the females was performing CPR on the male and police took over life-saving measures until EMS arrived. The male was transported to Chinook Regional Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Investigation determined a 24-year-old female was driving the vehicle when it rolled multiple times down a coulee before coming to rest on its roof. The female displayed signs of impairment and following further investigation, was arrested and charged.

Jesse Ann Fortune, 24, of Shaughnessy, is charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired operation over .08 causing death and dangerous driving causing death.

Following a Judicial Interim Release hearing, Fortune was released from custody with conditions prohibiting her from operating any motor vehicle. She is scheduled to appear in court May 30.
