A woman who was killed in a rollover accident received CPR. The Mounties have identified the Edmonton-area woman who was killed when a SUV she was a passenger in rolled on a bend near Lake Louise. Robyn Hauck, 25-years old from Leduc was killed in the crash and Vardan Hovalimvan, 32-years old of Calgary was severely injured and remains hospitalized.
The RCMP, paramedics and fire crews were dispatched to the westbound lanes of Highway 1 around one kilometer west of Lake Louise after a bystander called to report a single-vehicle collision.
A dark-colored SUV ended up in the ditch and 2 occupants were ejected. Neither was wearing a seatbelt according to Sgt. Jeff Campbell with the Lake Louise RCMP.
It appears that they were westbound, passing Slate Road and there is a slight curve in the road. They seem to be unfamiliar with the road and was surprised by the curve and over-corrected. As a result, they entered the right-hand ditch and rolled.
One of the first responding officers performed CPR on the 25-year old female passenger but she died at the scene. The 32-year old male driver was conscious when the crews arrived but not coherent. He was transported to Banff Mineral Springs Hospital by ground ambulance and flown to Foothills Hospital in Calgary by STARS air ambulance. The man sustained several blunt force trauma injuries after being ejected including head and spinal injuries and numerous fractures.
Campbell stated that there are indications of alcohol in the vehicle at the time and the police are attempting to determine if it had been consumed or was just transported.
