One person sent to hospital after pedestrian collision in South Quesnel

The collision was the second traffic incident Monday, Aug. 17

One man was taken to hospital after an incident with a vehicle in Quesnel just after 11 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 17.

A witness on scene said the injured man was a pedestrian, and the vehicle involved remained on scene.

Emergency crews lifted the man onto an ambulance on a backboard, and left for the hospital without turning on the siren.

The collision was on Maple Drive, across the highway from 7-Eleven in South Quesnel.

The man was seen moving and witnesses said they heard him talking to paramedics.

RCMP were on scene interviewing people and collecting evidence.

This was the second accident in Quesnel on Aug. 17, as just an hour earlier, a three-vehicle collision backed up traffic on Front Street.
