After the crashes last night in the Regina area, investigators have determined the following:
There were two fatal accidents on the Trans-Canada Highway near Regina last night, due to extremely icy conditions.
One fatal accident was 10 km east of Belle Plaine, between Regina and Moose Jaw.
An east-bound semi collided with a mini van that was parked on the side of the road and subsequently struck a pedestrian, a male in his mid-forties, who died on the scene.

After the initial collision, there were 6 or more other collisions in this immediate area relating to the initial collision and/or road conditions.
No one was taken to hospital in relation to this collision.
The line-up of traffic started clearing in this area near midnight.

A west-bound mini van was rear ended by a west-bound semi.
A 45-year-old male passenger in the mini van died on the scene and 7 people were transported to hospital with undetermined injuries. At the time of the collision there were 7 people traveling in the mini van and one person in the semi.
