Pedestrian hit


On September 18, 2012 at 8:40 AM the Yorkton City RCMP received a 911 call regarding a motor vehicle, pedestrian collision at the intersection of Broadway Street and Franklin Avenue in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.  Yorkton City RCMP, Yorkton Fire Department, and Crestvue Ambulance Service responded to the scene.  

A sixteen year old male was crossing the street at a marked crosswalk and was hit by an eastbound vehicle traveling on Broadway Street.  The sixteen year old male was transported to Yorkton Regional Health Centre by ambulance with minor injuries and is expected to be released shortly.  RCMP charged the driver of the vehicle for driving without due care and attention.  Alcohol was not a factor.
The RCMP are reminding motorists while driving to be careful during this time of year as students are back at school.  We would also like to remind pedestrians to look both ways before entering a crosswalk.
