Update: 07-19-2017: We understand a photo is circulating that is linking a commercial vehicle to the recent MVA fatality, and that the company identified in the photo is receiving a lot of attention from the media. The motorist operating the vehicle was not the owner of the vehicle/responsible for the vehicle, as police believe the vehicle was stolen at the time of the incident.
Yesterday, July 18, 2017, at approximately 8:06 a.m., police were dispatched to a motor vehicle incident on the 1800 block Winnipeg Street between 11th and 12th Avenue. EMS attended, and the victim, a fifty year-old Ontario male, was pronounced deceased at the scene. Yesterday, police seized an abandoned truck near the incident, believed to be the vehicle involved in this hit and run fatality.
The deceased’s next of kin have now been notified, but the victim’s identity will not be released at this time.
This incident remains under investigation. Anyone who has information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
