Vehicle vs pedestrian sends man to hospital

A pedestrian was sent to Trail hospital after an accident outside Castlegar Tim Horton's this morning, according to Fire Chief Sam Lattanzio.

He said the call came in at 9:56 a.m., and crews arrived at 10:02 a.m. to find RCMP already on scene and detouring traffic off Columbia Avenue.

Columbia Avenue was reopened at roughly 10:30 a.m.

He said an older gentleman was struck by a vehicle, and transported to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

These are the only details available at this time.
