The woman killed in a three-vehicle collision on the Anthony Henday on Saturday morning is being identified as Steffi Stuetz.
A former coworker and friend told CTV News the 28-year-old woman had three children and was a realtor.
After years of working as a realtor assistant, Stuetz recently got her licence and started a new job in August.
“She was on that path,” Darlene Reid, a friend and employer of Stuetz, told CTV News. “She was going to be a success — a strong independent woman.”
Ingrid Schifer remembers Stuetz as a good mother and a sweet person.
“She was a hard-working mom. She was very happy to be a mom,” Schifer said. “Those who knew her, knew her to be a beautiful, sweet girl — and a very loyal and caring friend.”
Reid set up a GoFundMe page has been setup for Stuetz to cover the funeral costs. In the page, Reid states Stuetz did not have insurance.
Police said the victim died in an early morning crash on the Anthony Henday near 109 Avenue. She was driving her Honda Odyssey northbound on the southbound lanes and struck a Mercedes Benz SUV head-on. A third vehicle then hit the SUV from behind.
The two occupants of the Mercedes Benz suffered non-life threatening injuries. Police said the two are doing well and are expected to make full recoveries.
Stuetz was declared dead on scene.
Police said alcohol or speed were not factors in the collision, and they have no reason to believe the woman hit the vehicle intentionally.
