A woman charged with impaired driving for a fatal crash last summer near Red Deer is going to trial this fall.

Bobbi Crotty, 24, faces several counts including impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing death, three counts of impaired operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm, impaired operation over 80 mg% of motor vehicle causing death, and three counts of impaired operation over 80 mg% of motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

It was on August 5, 2017 at approximately 11:15 p.m. when Blackfalds RCMP along with Red Deer County and City of Red Deer emergency services were dispatched to a multi-vehicle collision on Highway 11A.

A westbound vehicle collided with an eastbound vehicle nearly head-on. A third vehicle travelling westbound was involved in the collision with less severe damage.

Each of the occupants of the vehicles was rushed to Red Deer Regional Hospital with severe injuries.

A passenger in the eastbound vehicle passed away from injuries sustained in the collision.

Crotty's trial in Red Deer Provincial Court is scheduled for Sept. 17 – 25, 2018.
