A man and woman were killed and another woman left with critical injuries early Monday morning, after the car they were in collided with a pole in south Edmonton.

Edmonton police said it started just after 2:30 a.m., when a patrol officer attempted to pull over the black 2014 Ford Focus on Whitemud Drive westbound, near 91 Street.

Police said the traffic stop was initiated because the car’s registered owner was listed as a suspended driver.

The Ford reportedly did not stop for police and fled west at a high rate of speed, exiting the Whitemud at the Calgary Trail off ramp.

The police vehicle did not pursue, a news release said.

EMS treated and transported another passenger – a 23-year-old woman – to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
