A 29-year-old Winnipeg man is in court today facing charges for an alleged hit and run on the Perimeter Highway at Pembina Highway Friday evening.
RCMP Sgt. Rob Lockhart said police and emergency responders were sent to the scene around 6:30 p.m. Friday.
"It was learned that the driver of a H2 Hummer had collided with a van, then continued forward and collided with another van. The Hummer stopped and the occupants were assisted to the median. However at one point, the male suspect returned to the Hummer and left the scene, driving northbound on Pembina," Lockhart said.
"Occupants of both vans were not injured. However, the female occupant of the Hummer was transported to local hospital with injuries sustained in an incident leading up to the motor vehicle collision. The male and female occupants of the Hummer are known to each other and had been drinking prior to the collision," Lockhart said the investigation alleges.
The suspect was charged with dangerous operation of motor vehicle, impaired driving of motor vehicle, and assault.
