Williams Lake RCMP are investigating a report of a female pedestrian being struck by a vehicle in a parking lot on Mackenzie Avenue this afternoon.

Police say that a senior woman was coming out the front door of Kal Tire when she was struck by a truck.

Though the truck was moving slowly, the impact was enough to knock her down, says the RCMP, which were called to the scene at about 12:30 p.m.

The woman appears to be injured as a result of the fall and has been taken to Cariboo Memorial Hospital to receive X-rays.

Police add that the woman was alert and conscious at the time of the incident.
