One person appeared conscious as they were treated by paramedics

A pedestrian was struck by a car at Beacon and Resthaven at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Monday.

Sidney Fire, two ambulances and Sidney/North Saanich RCMP were at the scene. A woman was loaded onto a stretcher and transported to Saanich Peninsula Hospital by ambulance. She appeared to be conscious and alert when being treated by paramedics.

Traffic cleared quickly and there did not appear to be damage or debris from the vehicles involved.
