CALGARY – A portion of southbound Highway 2 was closed for several hours on Tuesday as police investigated a crash.
Two vehicles were involved in a collision near Veterans Boulevard just before 4 a.m.
The incident sent a teenage male to hospital with minor injuries, and forced the closure of Highway 2 between Veterans Boulevard and Yankee Valley Boulevard.
Police say it was indicated to them that a second male may have been involved, but didn’t stay at the scene of the crash.
Investigators believe the trucks weren’t actually driving on the QEII, but had traveled through a fence off of Edmonton Trail to enter the busy highway.
Police were involved in the pursuit of at least one vehicle on Tuesday morning in relation to a break and enter, but won’t confirm if that incident is in any way connected to the collision.
The QEII highway was reopened just before 7:30 a.m.
