Penticton pedestrian killed in intersection

A 20-year-old Penticton man is dead after being struck by a vehicle while crossing an intersection.

“At this point I am not anticipating any charges being laid. At this time the preliminary investigation shows the van was travelling through the intersection on a green light,” said Sgt. Rick Dellebuur.

RCMP said they responded to a motor vehicle accident on Tuesday at 9:50 p.m. at the intersection of Fairview Road and Channel Parkway after a northbound 2004 Pontiac Montana van driven by a 73-year-old Kaleden man struck the male who was crossing the road.

Dellebuur said the pedestrian was transported to Penticton Regional Hospital where he died as a result of his injuries. Penticton RCMP are continuing their investigation into the incident and anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 250-770-4715.
