Three adults – two females and one male – are in hospital following a single-vehicle collision that occurred early this morning on Victoria Avenue. One of the injured persons – the male driver – is said to have sustained life-threatening injuries.
At approximately 3:45 a.m., on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the Regina Police Service received a report of a single vehicle collision near the intersection of Victoria Avenue and Winnipeg Street. Reports indicated a vehicle had struck a tree at that location. Police, EMS and Regina Fire and Protective Services were all dispatched to the scene and located the three occupants of a black Mazda 2-door car. EMS and RFPS extracted three adults from the vehicle; they were transported to hospital by EMS. Officers blocked both east and west-bound traffic at the scene of the collision and began collecting witness statements and evidence as part of the investigation. Debris from the car was scattered on the street and in several yards near the collision site. The roadway was closed to traffic for just over three hours and re-opened again at about 7:08 a.m. Preliminary investigation indicates the Mazda was travelling westbound on Victoria Avenue at a high rate of speed. It appears the car was out of control approaching the intersection, narrowly missing another vehicle, and then colliding with a tree.
This collision is under investigation by the Regina Police Service. Given the early hour of this incident, it is possible the individuals already spoken to by police are the only persons who witnessed the actual collision, but others may have information about the events leading up to the collision. Anyone with information to add to this investigation is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
