Edmonton buildings evacuated close to a broken communications tower that would collapse

A man driving a stolen semi-trailer crashed into a vehicle in West Edmonton on Tuesday before entering the CTV parking lot, where he struck and disconnected a suspension cable for a communications tower.

The tower is in danger of collapsing.

The police have evacuated buildings in the area.

They closed 184th Street between Stony Plain Road and 104th Avenue.

The road is expected to remain closed for several hours.

The crash occurred around 2:40 p.m.

The driver of the stolen truck then stole a car, a blue 1995 Pontiac Grand Am, and fled the area.

A woman driving the vehicle hit by the semi-trailer was taken to hospital as a precaution.
