A pedestrian was taken to hospital Thursday evening after being struck on a busy downtown road.
Shortly before 7:30 p.m. emergency crews were called to the west end of Water Street following a motor-vehicle collision involving a pedestrian. The individual was struck by an eastbound vehicle, and suffered what were described as minor injuries.
The incident is the latest in a recent string of such collisions in the metro area. A day earlier a pedestrian was struck on Queen’s Road, leaving them with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.
