A 28 year-old male will face a criminal charge following a collision that occurred last night in Regina in the area of the Ring Road and East Dewdney Avenue.
Police were dispatched at about 10:43 p.m., Sunday, January 15, 2017, to the Ring Road at the overpass over Dewdney Avenue. The initial information indicated a black, GMC truck was southbound on the Ring Road and left the roadway just before the overpass. The truck travelled down between the bridges (one for northbound traffic, one for southbound). It initially struck the roadway on the north side/westbound lanes of Dewdney Avenue and then came into collision with the wall and pedestrian walkway on the south side/eastbound lanes of Dewdney. At that point, there was a second collision between the black, GMC truck and a blue, GMC truck, travelling eastbound on Dewdney Avenue. The driver and the passenger of the eastbound truck were checked by EMS and cleared at the scene. The driver of the black GMC was taken to hospital with undetermined injuries.
The 28 year-old driver will be charged with Impaired Driving, [Sec 253(1)(a), CC]. He remains in hospital at this time and has been issued an Appearance Notice to attend court on February 13, 2017.
