Charges are not being laid after a pedestrian was struck by a truck in Vernon last week.

Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP and BC Ambulance Service responded to a pedestrian motor vehicle collision on Nov. 10 at approximately 4:25 p.m.

“A GMC pickup travelling west on 31st Ave made a left turn onto 34th Street in Vernon and struck a 56-year-old female pedestrian who stepped onto the road to attempt to cross 31st Ave,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

The pedestrian was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the truck, a 49-year-old male resident of the Vernon area, is not facing charges.

“She stepped out fairly suddenly and he didn’t see her until it was too late,” said Noseworthy.
