Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP are reminding the public to keep a close eye out for pedestrians and vehicles after RCMP and the BC Ambulance Service were called to 43rd Avenue near 34th Street in Vernon Tuesday shortly before 4:45 p.m.

A 58-year-old male pedestrian had been crossing the road when he was struck by a car.

“Weather conditions are believed to have been a factor in the collision,” said RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy. “It was a very dark evening, and the pedestrian was wearing dark clothing.”
