Inspector James Sandberg described a “quite a debris field” at the scene, leading to the prolonged highway closure which lasted until around 5am Monday morning. Sandberg explained the closure gave officers time to thoroughly analyze and reconstruct the evidence from the collision.

All three occupants of the rolled vehicle were hospitalized, along with one person from the car it hit. Three of the four have since been released, while one remains in hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Multiple emergency response units were called to the crash, including police, fire crews, seven ground ambulances, an air ambulance, and highway contractors.

Police are now seeking any video taken near the scene prior to the accident, particularly from vehicles travelling on Highway 17 and 56th Street on Sunday evening. The footage may assist in determining the cause of the collision.
