File # 2019-40332

One person was sent to hospital following a pedestrian involved collision last evening.

At approximately 6:45 PM on Wednesday October 23rd, 2019, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian on Patricia Boulevard just east of Victoria Street in Prince George.

Frontline officers attended and located a single adult female suffering from injuries sustained from a collision with a Honda Civic. The pedestrian was transported to hospital for treatment of critical injuries. The driver remained on scene.

Investigators spoke to several witnesses and remained on scene gathering evidence for most of the evening. The vehicle was seized and will be examined. The pedestrian was wearing all black clothing and attempting to cross between intersections at the time of the collision. It was dark and raining heavily at the time. Speed is not believed to be a factor.

The investigation is continuing.

The Prince George RCMP and our partners have been actively engaged with pedestrians and drivers this month, reminding all road users about pedestrian safety during the darker portion of the year. Both pedestrians and drivers need to look for each other and exercise caution when using our roads.
