Cyclist dies after collision
A man riding a bike was killed in Transcona early Sunday morning when he was struck by an alleged drunk driver.
The crash happened just after 4 a.m. near the corner of Regent Avenue West and Brewster Street. The cyclist was heading west on Regent when he was struck.
He was rushed to hospital but died of his injuries.
A man is in police custody and is facing charges. Alcohol appears to be a factor in the collision, the Winnipeg Police Service said in a statement.
The name of the deceased will not be released. Family notifications are ongoing.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to contact members of the WPS central traffic unit at 204-986-6271. Regent between Plessis Road and Brewster was reopened in both directions around 2 p.m.
Man's death a homicide
RCMP investigators in Lloydminster, Alta., are treating the death of a Winnipeg-area man last week as a homicide.
Dustin Anthony Ferrante, 51, was found dead in a room at the Best Lodge hotel just after 4 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20.
No one has been arrested, and a cause of death wasn't released.
It isn't known how long Ferrante had been in Lloydminster, said an RCMP spokesman.
"Our information is he was a bit of a transient person but was doing some work in the area," said Staff Sgt. Dave Kalist.
"We don't know how long he had been here, but he was staying at that hotel."
