The Calgary Police Service is investigating a weekend crash in the city's southeast that sent one man to hospital in serious condition.

According to police officials, a sedan was travelling southbound on 36th Street S.E. when it crashed into an unoccupied SUV parked near 16th Avenue at around 4 a.m. Saturday.

Emergency crews responded and the driver of the sedan, a man in his 50s, was taken to hospital by ambulance.

The passenger in the car, a woman in her 30s, was treated on scene.
