Spectator killed during Jeep demonstration in Edmonton Add to ...

A spectator has been killed after a Jeep demonstration at an Edmonton fundraising event went disastrously wrong.

The event was called “Jeeps Go Topless” and was being held in the parking lot of a shopping centre to raise funds for the Edmonton Food Bank.

Police say it appears one of the Jeeps was involved in a climbing demonstration when it lost control and struck a woman.

Paramedics provided CPR to the woman but she was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital, police say.

Police say the driver of the Jeep was also taken to hospital with unknown injuries.

No one from the food bank could be immediately reached for comment.
