Pedestrian struck by vehicle

A pedestrian was injured Tuesday evening after being hit by a vehicle in Penticton

UPDATE: 9:30 a.m.

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

The two women were crossing at a marked crosswalk, when they were hit by a 2015 Mazda 3 bearing Alberta plates.

One female suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, while the other suffered minor injuries, according to Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth.

“They both were taken to the hospital and the driver of the Mazda was issued a ticket for driving without due care and driving with no lights on,” Wrigglesworth said.

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.
