The driver stayed at the scene of the incident and was issued a ticket by West Shore RCMP for failing to yield to a pedestrian on a green light.

“We do have pedestrians and cyclists clipped or struck or bumped into in some fashion in parking lots or in intersections fairly regularly,” Said Sgt. Martin Beardsmore of West Shore RCMP. “One of the things we have out here is the enormous volume of traffic.”

Traffic was also impacted in View Royal Friday morning. Emergency crews were at Atkins Road and Six Mile for a reported two-vehicle crash.
