A 40 year-old male is facing several charges after a vehicle/pedestrian collision in Regina yesterday (Wednesday) that resulted in injuries to a 45 year-old male victim.
On Wednesday, September 28, 2022, at approximately 9:53 p.m., police were dispatched to 12th Avenue and Broad Street for a report of a motor vehicle collision with injury. The early information indicated a truck had hit a pedestrian. Police arrived and attended to the victim, who was treated at the scene by EMS. At the same time, police noted the presence of a black Dodge Ram truck at the scene. A male was walking toward the vehicle and, when police commanded him to stop, the male got into the truck and fled northbound on Broad Street. Other police units were advised by radio of the fleeing driver; a spike belt was authorized and safely deployed in the area of 8th Avenue North and Broad Street. The suspect vehicle continued for a short distance before police were able to safely arrest the driver. Further investigation led to charges against this individual.
Forty year-old Daniel Robert WEST, of Buena Vista, Saskatchewan, is charged with:
- Impaired operation of a conveyance by alcohol, drugs, or a combination, s. 320.14(1)(a) CC;
- Refusal to comply with (breath) demand, s. 320.15(1) CC;
