Pedestrian struck, taken to hospital, following mid-afternoon collision

A pedestrian was taken to hospital Wednesday afternoon following the latest in a string of recent vehicle-pedestrian collisions in the metro region.

The force of the collision caused damage to the hood and windshield of the vehicle, and left the pedestrian laying in the road a short distance away.

Two pedestrians sent to hospital following separate collisions

Two separate collisions in the centre of St. John’s on Saturday evening sent two pedestrians to hospital, neither with life-threatening injuries.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Crosbie Road and Terra Nova Road at about 6:30 p.m. after a pedestrian was struck while crossing the street. Glare from oncoming headlights is reported to have been a contributing factor as the driver of a sedan failed to notice the individual on a crosswalk.

Paramedics took the injured person to hospital with what were described as non life-threatening injuries. The vehicle involved sustained damage to its front end and windshield. Police closed the road for close to an hour as they investigated.

Shortly before 8 p.m., a second collision occurred a short distance away at the intersection of Columbus Drive and Old Pennywell Road. An individual using a kick scooter was struck while crossing the road. Paramedics assisted the rider to a waiting ambulance, taking them to hospital with injuries not believed to be serious.
