The truck involved in a deadly crash in Saskatoon on Thursday was reported stolen by the driver’s family just before the incident.
Witnesses have told Saskatoon police they saw the driver of the truck speeding before the collision.
The driver was heading down 19th Street toward the Broadway Bridge around 3 a.m. before the truck smashed into at least two light posts in front of the Sask Jazz Fest free stage. The light posts bent over, nearly parallel to the sidewalk.
The 15-year-old boy died at the scene.
Police will not know if alcohol was a factor until the toxicology report comes back. Investigators say the vehicle was definitely travelling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash.
