A Regina district male will face charges, as the result of a hit and run collision on Sunday, May 23rd.
This incident began when a hit and run collision was reported to police, around 3:30 a.m., in the area of 9th Avenue North and Albert Street. A suspect vehicle sideswiped a victim vehicle, but the driver of the victim vehicle was able to follow the suspect vehicle, a Kia Niro, as police were en route. Police encountered the suspect vehicle at Ross Avenue and Winnipeg Street, but the vehicle didn’t stop for emergency equipment, running a red light in the process. An unsuccessful attempt to stop the vehicle occurred in the area of Fleet and Victoria, but it was a tire deflation device (spikebelt) deployed on Ring Road by Dewdney Avenue, which was effective in bringing the vehicle to a stop. The driver was taken into custody but transported first to hospital by EMS for treatment of an apparent self-inflicted physical injury. The male was later released with conditions by investigators. Charges, including Fail to Remain at the scene of a collision and Dangerous Driving, are pending.
