1 person in life-threatening condition after single-vehicle crash

A collision on the southside of Calgary left one person in serious condition Saturday.

Police said a vehicle burst into flames after hitting a median as it travelled westbound on Stoney Trail at 52 Street S.E.

A photo by a witness showed a white truck engulfed in flames as its front end was pinned against a pole.

The driver – and lone occupant of the vehicle – was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition.

Stoney Trail westbound was closed and motorists were asked to use alternate routes.
