The Regina Police Service, in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Coroners Service, continues to investigate a fatal vehicle-pedestrian collision that occurred earlier this week. An adult male died as the result of this collision, involving a Regina Transit bus and a pedestrian. Although collision investigations are long and complex, the early indications show no criminal wrongdoing on the part of the driver of the Transit bus.

He is a 61 year-old Regina male. His family has been notified of his death.
The Regina Police Service continues to work closely with the Saskatchewan Coroners Service to determine the cause of the collision and the circumstances of this person’s death.
