The Prince George RCMP remind drivers and pedestrians to be aware of each other after a 26-year-old woman was injured over the weekend.

The incident took place just before 2 pm on Saturday along 5th Avenue near Nicholson Street where the victim and two other people attempted to cross but was a struck by a vehicle that was unable to stop.

With the weather still cold and the streets icy, Cpl. Craig Douglass tells My PG Now, both parties need to be responsible.

“Pedestrians need to take care of themselves even if they have the right of way to make sure that vehicles are completely stopped especially in this weather with the conditions we have out. Cars need to be able to stop, don’t step out in front of them and of course, drivers need to be constantly looking as pedestrians are sometimes unpredictable and may step out.”

He adds there are also other factors at play when looking into an incident similar to this one.

“On a bright sunny day, you also have to take into account the sun, where the sun was and the glare of it on the road all of these different factors. The bottom line is night or day is to make eye contact and to be predictable.”

Emergency crews attended the scene where the woman was taken for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation is on-going.
