Winnipeg Police CrestTwo people who police say refused to pay their restaurant bill early Friday were struck by a vehicle shortly after fleeing the restaurant.

Winnipeg police were called to the 1500 block of Regent Avenue at around 12:15 a.m. after getting a call from staff.

Before officers could arrive, the intoxicated 38-year-old man and 41-year-old woman left the restaurant and crossed Regent Avenue near Stapon Road on foot heading north. They crossed both east and westbound lanes before being hit by a westbound truck in the curb lane.

The woman was sent to hospital in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable. The man sustained non-life threatening injuries and is in stable condition.

Police closed the roadway to traffic for several hours while they investigated.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (204) 986-6271.
