The Regina Police Service continues to investigate a serious collision between a bicycle and a vehicle which occurred last night.
At approximately 11:50 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, 2018, police units were dispatched to a report of a motor vehicle collision which occurred in the area of Arcola Avenue and the Highway #1 Bypass, in the westbound lanes. When officers arrived on scene, they found there had been a collision between a vehicle and a cyclist. The male cyclist appeared to have sustained serious injuries and was treated, and then transported to hospital, by EMS. Police members dealt with the driver of the vehicle; another officer accompanied the ambulance and 21 year-old victim to the hospital. Other members, who had diverted traffic away from the scene of the collision, remained at the scene for the purposes of the investigation. A collision reconstruction team was requested.
While we recognize the community’s concern, it is inappropriate to release medical information about the victim except to say that he remains in hospital at this time. The collision is still under investigation. The Regina Police Service reminds the public that collision investigations are complex and involve a comprehensive process of gathering all available physical evidence and witness statements. This process also gathers and considers a wide variety of other factors and potential contributors including vehicle integrity, time of day, weather, roadway conditions, roadway markings, other vehicles, etc.
If there is anyone who has information that could assist police in this investigation, they are asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
