REGINA — Regina Police Service continues to investigate a series of collisions in the city’s northwest that resulted in injuries to a seven year-old child.
According to police, at approximately 8:36 a.m. on June 21, several police units were called to the 200 block of Dalgleish Drive in response to a report of a motor vehicle collision with injuries.
What happened next and the chronological order is still not confirmed and under investigation.

It was within this series of collisions that a child was struck and critically injured, say police.
The seven-year-old was taken to hospital by ambulance. The driver of the truck was also assessed and taken to hospital.
