Police investigating fatal collision

Lethbridge Police are investigating a fatal collision that claimed the life of a 27-year-old man.

On May 29, 2024 just before 8 p.m., police responded to a report of a vehicle submerged in the Old Man River just north of the Highway 3 overpass near the Tollestrup Construction gravel yard. Members of the Lethbridge Fire and Emergency Services Dive Team confirmed there was one deceased occupant inside the vehicle.  

Following further investigation, including  a review of CCTV footage, police determined a male entered a car in the parking lot and a short time later drove off the embankment after losing control of the vehicle on a gravel road.

The victim’s body will be transported to the Calgary Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy to determine cause of death. 

The investigation is ongoing. The identity of the victim will not be released.
