Commercial Robbery / Fatal Motor Vehicle Collision
Investigation – C

Members of the Winnipeg Police Service are currently on scene at Portage Avenue and Good Street regarding a fatal motor vehicle collision which occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m.  All east bound lanes of Portage Avenue remain closed at this time.

At approximately 1:20 a.m. members of the Winnipeg Police Service observed a vehicle, suspected to be involved in a commercial robbery earlier in the evening, in the area of Empress Street and Portage Avenue.  Police attempted to stop the vehicle, at which time it fled eastbound on Portage Avenue.  Officers pursued, but due to its high rate of speed, they lost sight of the vehicle.  A short time later the vehicle lost control and struck a building at the intersection of Portage Avenue and Good Street.

An adult female was transported to hospital in critical condition where she later succumbed to her injuries.  An adult male fled the scene on foot but was located and arrested without incident a short distance away.

The investigation is in its early stages and no further information is available.

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba has been notified and continues to investigate.

For further information contact either:
Constable Jason Michalyshen, Public Information Officer
Constable Eric Hofley, Public Information Officer
Kelly Dehn, Manager of Public Affairs
