A 30 year-old Regina male has been charged with Fail to Remain at the scene of a collision, as well as alcohol and drug-related charges, following an incident at Lewvan Drive and Dewdney Avenue on the weekend.
On January 28, 2018 at approximately 3:00 a.m., police were dispatched to the intersection of Lewvan Drive and Dewdney Avenue for a report of a two-vehicle collision. Police arrived to find just one vehicle at the scene with extensive damage. The vehicle was a taxicab with five occupants. Two of the injured persons had to be removed from the vehicle with the help of Regina Fire and Protective Services and EMS. One male was taken to hospital; the other four sustained relatively minor injuries. Preliminary investigation indicated the taxi was stopped at a red light, northbound on Lewvan Drive. It’s alleged the cab was struck from behind by a northbound truck, which propelled the cab into the intersection. It’s alleged the truck fled the scene without offering assistance to the injured persons. With the help of witnesses, police were able to locate the suspect vehicle near 9th Avenue North. The male driver of the vehicle was taken into custody. Subsequent investigation led to charges against this individual.
