Regina Police are on the lookout for a black Lexus sedan that was clocked going 213 kilometers an hour earlier this year.
On April 22nd the Lexus IS350 was pulled over by officers on the Highway 1 by-pass crossing Victoria Avenue, but during the stop the vehicle took off very quickly.
Police pursued the car for a brief period but were forced to end the chase for safety reasons, it was at that time where the extreme speed was recorded.
Inspector Lorilee Davies said an impact at that speed will almost always result in a fatality.
“When you’re travelling speeds of that magnitude and if you are involved in a collision it’s going to be very serious and there’s good chance there’s going to be fatalities, and obviously we want to be able to prevent that.
Inspector Davies added if that isn’t enough of a motivator criminal charges are also possible for being caught driving speeds of this nature.
She says repercussions will be having your vehicle impounded and possibly being charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Police are also asking anyone with information to contact them.
On Sunday at approximately 6:15 p.m., a Regina Police Service Traffic Safety Unit member observed what is believed to be the same vehicle with the same dark rims with its notable blue pin striping, turning northbound on Lewvan Drive from westbound Gordon Road.
The vehicle evaded police, but the license plate was observed.
The plate number was connected to an expired plate registered to another vehicle.
