The Regina Police Service is asking the public for assistance as they investigate a hit and run incident involving a cyclist.
On November 9, 2023 at approximately 5:30 a.m., police officers attempted a traffic stop on a black Ford Escape SUV at 8th Avenue and Elphinstone Street. The driver of the vehicle did not stop and proceeded through a red light, evading police. A short time later officers were driving near 1st Avenue and Elphinstone Street when they came upon a male cyclist who had been struck by a vehicle just moments earlier. EMS arrived and transported the victim to hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
Officers located the suspect vehicle involved in the hit and run at 3rd Avenue and Garnet Street, however, the occupants of the vehicle were no longer at the scene. The vehicle was the same one that had evaded police earlier at 8th Avenue and Elphinstone Street. Investigation determined the suspect vehicle was stolen and at this time police are still searching for the suspect involved.
Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their cooperation and their assistance in this matter.
