Penticton RCMP responded to South Main Street and Kinney Avenue before 10 p.m. Tuesday, where two women were hit by a Mazda.

A pedestrian was struck by a car on Tuesday at 9:38 p.m. at the intersection of South Main Street and Kinney Avenue.

A witness at the scene said that upon arrival of first responders, a woman was found laying in the middle of the road near the crosswalk in obvious pain. It appears as though the woman was struck by the vehicle and also hit the windshield.

The area was closed to traffic for some time as RCMP investigated the scene.
