Pedestrian injured

A young Vernon woman trying to make a dash across a busy street was struck by a vehicle Thursday.

The pedestrian attempted to cross the 3500 block of 32nd Street, near Boston Pizza, around 6 p.m. when she was hit by a truck from Alberta.

The 22-year-old was taken to hospital with abrasions and possibly a fractured leg.

“Traffic was steady, I think it was dark, the road was dry and she was wearing dark clothing,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“She crossed northbound traffic flow and the first vehicle stopped for her but there were two lanes of traffic.”
