UPDATE (May 7): Multiple witnesses reported seeing a 25-year-old female struck by a vehicle that was drving at a slow speed. Witnesses reported the vehicle fully stopped at the intersection then proceeded to turn left onto First Street from Birch Avenue, where the vehicle struck the pedestrian who was walking on the cross walk.

“The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and has been fully cooperative with the investigation,” said Staff Sgt. Nielsen on a news release on May 7.

The injured female was taken to 100 Mile Hospital as a precaution for possible unknown injuries. Her family is aware of her present condition and location.

Nielsen said the intersection has been cleared and the matter is still being investigated by local RCMP.

ORIGINAL (May 6): The intersection of Birch Avenue and First Street is partially closed after a motor vehicle hit a pedestrian on May 6 roughly around 4:30 p.m.

“We got called to a pedestrian hit. A woman was struck in the intersection here, other than that we’re just here to help out with the scene,” said 100 Mile Fire Rescue Fire Chief Roger Hollander.

The RCMP confirmed a person was struck at the intersection but could not offer any more details at this time and are still investigating.

According to Hollander, the intersection is partially blocked off for safety reasons and precautions.

“This is notoriously a bad intersection,” said Hollander. “I don’t know what the circumstances of this particular case are but we certainly ask the public to exercise caution in town and recognize the speed limits as well.”
