The RCMP are reporting a death after a short police pursuit Sunday night, which was called off just before the driver lost control.
Around 9 o’clock, RCMP officers were conducting a check-stop in the Onion Lake area.
A stopped vehicle sped off and a pursuit ensued, but was called off for public safety.
Police say the lone male in the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.
As a result, the Saskatchewan RCMP has requested an independent, external investigation around the circumstances, which will be conducted by the Regina Police Service.
The RCMP has also requested the Ministry of Justice appoint an independent observer.
