Winnipeg, Manitoba – On September 7, 2016 at approximately 8:10 a.m., emergency personnel responded to the area of the Perimeter and St. Anne’s Road for the report of a serious collision involving a male on a bike and a dump truck.
As a result of the collision, Michael Larry SLOBODIAN, 45 years old succumbed to his injuries.
Members of the Central Traffic Unit continue to investigate. At this time, it has been determined that SLOBODIAN was riding his bike in a westbound direction on the perimeter approaching St. Anne’s Road. At the same time, a Mack truck, also travelling west came to a stop at a red light.

Fatalities such as this have a profound effect on our community and more specifically the family and friends of the person involved.
