Description FAVOURITE PHOTO OF 2017 Congregation members collapse as they are overcome with grief during a church service at Solid Rock Church International in Edmonton on Sunday September 24, 2017. Three women from the church congregation died and a fourth was transported to hospital in Edmonton after a stolen heavy-duty, flat-deck truck collided with a minivan on Highway 16 east of Edmonton. The wife of the church pastor was one of the victims killed in the crash. The chair draped in a black cloth is the seat that the pastor's wife used to sit in during church services. An ambulance was called to the church to treat the members who collapsed in grief. (PHOTO BY LARRY WONG/POSTMEDIA)
