Halifax Regional Police is investigating a vehicle/pedestrian collision that occurred this afternoon in Halifax.
At 1:50 p.m., police responded to a vehicle/pedestrian collision at the intersection of Cornwallis and Brunswick Streets. A 27-year-old woman crossing Brunswick Street in a marked crosswalk was hit by a pickup truck turning left from Cornwallis Street onto Brunswick Street. She suffered what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries and was transported to hospital by EHS.
The 45-year-old male driver 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.
