Collision sends pedestrian to Vernon Jubilee Hospital

A Vernon senior was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital Monday after being struck by a truck near the downtown core.

Vernon RCMP report that at about 4:40 p.m., officers were called to a report that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle at 25th Avenue and 34th Street.

“The driver of the truck was headed east on 25th Avenue and he had stopped at 34th Street to allow traffic to clear the intersection so he could turn left (north) onto 34th Street,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“An 84-year-old female pedestrian was in the crosswalk when the driver went to make his turn.”

Molendyk said the truck driver saw the pedestrian at the last moment, but was unable to stop before making contact with her.

The woman was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with a facial laceration and possible fractures.

Police are continuing with their investigation and no charges have been laid as of Tuesday.
