Driver ticketed after pedestrian hit on Oxford & Coburg

Halifax Regional Police is investigating a vehicle/pedestrian collision that occurred this morning in Halifax.
 
At 7:07 a.m., police responded to a vehicle/pedestrian collision at the intersection of Coburg Road and Oxford Street in Halifax. A 45-year-old woman crossing Oxford Street in a crosswalk was hit by a pickup truck turning left from Coburg Road onto Oxford Street. She suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital by EHS.
 
A 31-year-old man was issued a summary offence ticket under section 125(1) of the Motor Vehicle Act for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. This ticket carries a fine of $693.95 and four points on a driver’s license upon conviction.
 
Road safety is a shared responsibility. Motorists are reminded to slow down, pay attention and adjust their driving for the conditions. There is a crosswalk at every intersection, whether it is marked or not, and drivers must yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk.
