The crash that killed three members of a Sorrento family and left one in coma has taken another life.
Saskatchewan RCMP has reported the death of the 30-year-old driver of the SUV that crashed head-on with the Janzen family’s vehicle midday Sunday near Rosetown, Sask.
Ryan Bridger of Plato, Sask., died Tuesday of his injuries after colliding with the Janzen’s westbound vehicle as it passed a semi.
Police are not disclosing the medical condition or name of the 56-year-old passenger in the SUV with Bridger at the time.
Doug Janzen was driving with his wife Pat, their daughters 19-year-old Alli and 13-year-old Cassidy and their 16-year-old son Cody on their way back from a family wedding in Saskatchewan.
The rainy day led police to suspect the truck’s spray may have limited Janzen’s visibility. Doug, Alli and Cassidy died following the accident while Cody was not seriously injured.
Latest reports indicate Pat Janzen is in an induced coma.
The surviving family members have discussed the possibility of a memorial service for Saturday, June 23, according to a family friend, but that is tentative.
Close family friends from Sorrento are on their way to Saskatoon’s Royal University Hospital where Pat is being treated.
