A 26-year-old woman was struck by a vehicle this weekend.

On Saturday (Feb. 9), the Prince George RCMP were called to a motor vehicle incident involving the pedestrian on Fifth Avenue near Nicholson Street.

The woman and two other pedestrians were attempting to cross Fifth Avenue when she was struck as the vehicle was attempting to stop.

Police and emergency services attended the scene; the woman was transported to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The driver remained on scene and police say witnesses stopped to assist.

While RCMP say the investigation is continuing, police would like to remind pedestrians to ensure that vehicles are stopped before stepping out into traffic.

Drivers should also be on the lookout for pedestrians at all times and drive to conditions.
