UPDATE: Man charged after fatal collision south of Lumsden
A young Regina man has now been charged following a fatal collision early Sunday morning.
A series of collisions about six kilometres south of Lumsden on Highway 11 led to the death of a 69-year-old Regina man.
A vehicle travelling southbound first struck a horse that was on the road. The vehicle then went through the ditch, coming to a stop in a parking lot along the highway.
The victim of the fatal collision then struck the body of the dead horse still on the road. This is not, however, the collision that killed the man. He had pulled over and parked on the shoulder of the highway to examine the damage.
The vehicle was then hit from behind by a third vehicle. The driver was 24-year-old Jared Mitchell Mowbay from Regina. RCMP have now charged Mowbay with impaired operation of a motor vehicle, causing death and impaired operation over 80 milligrams of alcohol.
The family of the victim has asked that his name not be released.
