Winnipeg police have arrested a Steinbach man after he allegedly fled the scene of a fatal crash involving a motorcyclist last year.
The crash happened June 2, 2018 when a westbound motorcycle on Portage Avenue collided with a van travelling north on Home Street.
The motorcyclist was transported to hospital in critical condition and later succumbed to his injuries.
The driver of the van and a passenger fled the area on foot.
On March 23, police arrested the 44-year-old Steinbach driver of the van. Charges are pending, including failing to stop at the scene of an accident involving death, driving while disqualified, driving without a licence and driving while suspended.
As the charges haven’t been formally laid, the man’s name isn’t being released.
He was released on a promise to appear.
