News: Family searches for answers after fatal crash near Rocky Mountain House

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE, AB – The family of a woman killed in a pedestrian collision three kilometers west of Rocky Mountain House in February are still searching for answers, CTV News Edmonton reported last Monday.

Cindy Abraham, 42, had been walking along Highway 11A on the evening of February 27 when she was struck by an eastbound pickup truck at about 7:30 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup truck was not charged, as Abraham was in the driving lanes at the time of the collision.

While the RCMP conducted an investigation of the collision, Abraham’s family say that they have released few details of their findings to date. It was days after the fact that the County, not the Mounties, divulged that the pickup truck had been driven by a member of Clearwater Regional Fire Rescue Service. Several more days passed before they issued a further statement clarifying that the vehicle was also operated by CRFRS, and that it had not been responding to an emergency at the time.

“We want to know if it’s an accident, or intentional,” Abraham’s sister told CTV News Edmonton. “Like did Cindy get in front? Or was the driver blindsided by the sunset?”
