A 24 year-old Regina male faces four charges after a single vehicle collision this morning (Friday, February 5, 2016) that sent two people to hospital with significant injuries.
Police were dispatched at 5:43 a.m. to the area of 4th Avenue/Ross Avenue for a report of a single vehicle collision. Preliminary investigation indicates the vehicle was proceeding east on 4th Avenue as it becomes Ross Avenue and failed to negotiate the curve in the roadway. The vehicle struck a curb, a sawhorse, a traffic sign, a chain link fence and a tree before coming to rest near the entrance to the Regina Fire and Protective Services’ training facility. There were two injured male passengers in the vehicle, ages 28 and 23 years old. Early information received indicated a male had run from the site of the collision. Police obtained a description of the driver and located him in the area a short time later. He was taken into custody without incident. During this time, the injured passengers were extricated from the vehicle by Regina Fire and Protective Services and taken to hospital by EMS. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening but both are believed to have sustained broken bones, among other injuries. Further investigation into the collision led to charges against the male driver of the vehicle.
Twenty-four year-old David PEIGAN, DOB: 1991-05-31, of Regina, is charged with two charges of Impaired Driving Causing Bodily Harm [255(2) CC] and two charges of Exceed .08 Causing Bodily Harm [255(2.1) CC].
