The man accused in a deadly hit and run case in Regina Saturday will have to wait to see if he will be allowed out on bail.

Twenty-two-year-old Jackan Davis allegedly struck a 17-year-old girl early Saturday morning. He appeared in court by video this morning.

Early Saturday, police were called about a person lying in the southbound lanes of Albert Street near 9th Avenue at about 3 a.m. Officers believe minutes earlier, she was struck while walking with friends.

EMS declared her dead at the scene. The vehicle that struck her had left the scene.

Davis also accused of striking another person Saturday as well.

The girl has been identified and her family has been contacted. Her name is not being released by police.

In addition to dangerous driving causing death, hit and run, and dangerous driving causing bodily harm, Davis is accused of breaching his probation.

He’ll have a bail hearing later this week.
