“Her condition changed later in the day and she was airlifted to Vancouver with serious injuries,” said Quesnel RCMP Sgt. Richard Weseen in an update on the victim’s condition.
The woman was crossing at the entrance to G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital when she was struck by a northbound vehicle which was turning into the hospital from Front Street over the lunch hour.
Members of the Quesnel RCMP and Quesnel Volunteer Fire Department attended the scene just after noon at Front Street and the entrance to G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital.
Emergency Health Services attended as well as staff from the hospital.
The pedestrian was initially treated at G.R. Baker Hospital.
Weseen said the driver of the vehicle was issued a ticket for failing to stop for a pedestrian.
