Accident Tonight At Broad & 12th

Broad Accident ILooks to have been a pretty major accident at the intersection of Broad and 12th Ave. tonight around 6:30 p.m. Walking up to investigate from Scarth St. Mall after I’d spotted the emergency lights, I saw a guy on a bike turn right off the north-east corner sidewalk at Hamilton and 12th and just about get ironed by a car heading south on Hamilton and about to cross the intersection on a green light.

He escaped injury, but that possibly wasn’t the case in this collision. In addition to the police in attendance (photo above), there was an ambulance you can see after the jump.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
