Regina police probe string of pedestrian mishaps
Boy, 2 women, man injured this week
A series of accidents where pedestrians have been injured have kept Regina police busy in recent days.
Police said a man, 23, will make his first court appearance Friday morning in connection with a hit-and-run Tuesday where a little boy ended up with a broken leg.
Child hospitalized with broken leg
The child was taken to hospital at the corner of 1st Avenue and Athol Street after he was hit by a car at around supper time.
Police say the suspect fled the scene immediately. After he was arrested, he was charged with hit and run causing bodily harm.
Woman receives serious injuries
Meanwhile, a 25-year-old woman who was struck in the south end of the city is still in serious condition at Regina General Hospital.
Police say she has very serious injuries after being hit by a car on Gordon Road and Queen Street.
Police continue to investigate. They still have not determined if charges are warranted in the incident.
Pedestrian gets run over by own van
Another woman was rushed to hospital from the city's northwest last night, after being hurt by her own van.
Police say they got the call around 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The woman had somehow fallen out of the van while it was in reverse.
The vehicle ran over her, leaving her with serious injuries. She remains in hospital this morning.
1 car stops, but other doesn't
Finally, there were broken bones for a pedestrian at Albert Street and 3rd Avenue North last night at around 11:18.
Two vehicles were approaching a man in the northbound lanes as he tried to cross the street.
One stopped abruptly for the pedestrian, but the other car was not able to stop in time.
The man was clipped by a mirror and suffered some broken bones.
