Female pedestrian treated for non life threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle

A 16-year-old female pedestrian was examined for non-life threatening injuries at Cariboo Memorial Hospital after being struck by a vehicle while walking across the crosswalk at Third Avenue North and Cameron Street in Williams Lake around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, Dec. 4.

RCMP attended the scene and said a follow-up investigation determined that an adult male driver, who was starting from a stopped position at a stop sign on Cameron Street, turned onto Third Avenue and struck the female pedestrian in the crosswalk.

The male driver has been charged under the Motor Vehicle Act for failing to yield, the RCMP said.
