CALGARY — Police in Medicine Hat, Alta., believe a woman killed in a two-vehicle collision during a highway pursuit was possibly being abducted.
Insp. Tim McGough confirmed two people died after a car Mounties were chasing collided with a semi truck on Hwy. 884 near Suffield late Friday morning.
Mounties took over the pursuit from Medicine Hat police once the suspect car left city limits.
The case began with a 911 call from a home in Medicine Hat.
"We believe it was (that woman)," McGough said.
"We believe they were both from that residence, and we believe she was being held against her consent.
"We believe she was potentially being abducted."
He said the line cut off suddenly.
Officers forced their way in and found no one was home.
McGough could not elaborate on what evidence police found inside the home, but said it was enough to believe the woman was in imminent danger.
Police found a suspect vehicle on Hwy. 1 but failed to stop it.
A man in the semi truck was taken to hospital in stable condition.
