There's a gaping hole in the side of a west Saskatoon business after a vehicle crashed through it Tuesday evening.
Saskatoon police say that at around 11:30 p.m. a 56-year-old woman may have meant to tap the brake as she pulled in front of the business in the 3300 Block of Fairlight Drive.
But instead- she pushed the gas pedal and smashed into the building. The vehicle and the business suffered extensive damage. No one was injured.
A Saskatoon man says he was scammed after realizing $900 went missing from his Affinity Credit Union account over the weekend.
"I'm sure they got hundreds of people that could have lost a minimum of $500. That could be up to 50 grand up to half a million dollars," said Darryl Cherry, who believes he was the victim of a debit card scam targeting Affinity Credit Union customers in Saskatoon.
Cherry wasn't able to contact his branch manager because it was a Sunday, so he called police.
A Saskatoon woman sobbed uncontrollably as the verdict of manslaughter was read aloud Friday at Court of Queen's Bench for the teen who shot and killed her 19-year-old daughter Charlotte Jolly in 2009.
The charge was originally second degree murder, but Justice Grant Curry stated there was not enough evidence to prove that charge.
For more than a week, court heard various witness accounts of the night the teen and Jolly met in a Westview area alley off Avenue W in September 2009.
Saskatoon RCMP are investigating may be the remains of a person in the RM of Corman Park east of Saskatoon.
It appears a rash of pin pad debit and credit card frauds in Saskatoon is continuing.
But police say it's getting harder for criminals to get your bank information, because local businesses are finally starting to be vigilant about the scam.
Police spokesperson Alyson Edwards sasy in two recent cases, potential scammers were caught in the act by employees.
"The acts were interrupted and the suspects fled. It is good to know that employees and businesses are being vigilant and they know a little bit more, perhaps, now about what to watch for."
In its first game at home since Nov. 22, the Saskatoon Blades returned to Credit Union Centre after a treacherous U.S. tour where they lost all five games.
And the return home didn’t fare well for the Blades either, losing 3-2 at the hands of the Regina Pats. Saskatoon only mustered 23 shots in the game, only four in the first 20 minutes, while Regina peppered Blades’ goalie Troy Trombley with 49 shots, 20 coming in the opening period.
Highlighting public art in Saskatoon while hiding it behind white winter-camouflaged plastic wrap is the latest work in the City of Saskatoon’s Placemaker program.
“We thought it presented something ground breaking and it would highlight our current collection and get people talking about public art and get them noticing and engaging with what we have around us right now,” Kevin Kitchen, director of community initiatives, said.
The weather outside was frightful, but the run was still delightful.
Bundled in layers and cheered on by Santa Clause, more than 30 people came out for the 23rd annual Saskatoon Santa Shuffle. The temperature outside was a frigid -47 C with the wind chill.
Despite the frigid climate, Run Organizer and Salvation Army spokeswoman Heather Hedstrom said the run always draws a crowd.
The charity one and five kilometer run raises money for the Salvation Army’s Mumford House; an emergency shelter for women and children.
Saskatoon Police, paramedics and fire crews were kept busy Friday afternoon and early Saturday after the city experienced a string of car crashes due to poor road conditions and driving.
A 16 car pileup halted traffic on the Sid Buckwold Bridge around 4:40 p.m. Friday evening. Police say icy roads on the bridge caused the accident.
No one was seriously injured.
Around the same time, College Drive slowed to a crawl after three separate collisions, all within a 45 minute span.
