HRP Responded to Vehicle / Pedestrian Accident – Halifax

Halifax Regional Police responded to a vehicle/pedestrian collision that occurred this morning in Halifax.

At 9:05 a.m., police responded to a vehicle/pedestrian collision that occurred in the 2800 block of Gottingen St.  A cube truck was legally in the crosswalk, waiting to make a right hand turn, when a man in an electric wheelchair entered the crosswalk and struck the back of the truck. The man suffered non-life threatening injuries and EHS transported him to the QEII Health Sciences Center where he was treated and released.

The 50-year-old male pedestrian was issued a summary offence ticket under Section 125(3) of the Motor Vehicle Act for moving into the path of a vehicle when impractical for the vehicle to stop.
