Monday, 16 June 2014 10:33

Just before 9:00pm Sunday, 60 year old Dianna L. Hartman of Columbia was traveling north on the Veterans Outer loop and behind another vehicle in the inside lane (fast lane).  28 year old Michael Sturgeon of Edmonton was traveling north bound on the outside lane (slow lane).  Hartman changed lanes from the inside lane to the outside lane in order to get out from behind a vehicle she was following.  The front of Sturgeon’s vehicle hit the rear of Hartman’s.  There was approximately 226 feet of skipping and solid skid marks from unit two before impact was made.

 

After impact Hartman’s vehicle skidded off the right shoulder backward and came to final rest on a n embankment and Sturgeon’s skidded on its side for approximately 400 more feet before coming to final rest.  Hartman states the last time she had seen Sturgeon’s vehicle  he was way back behind her.  Sturgeon’s speed is unknown, but it is suspected he was beyond the speed limit.
