Pedestrian struck near college

A pedestrian was struck near Okanagan College, around 8:30 Tuesday morning.

The impact smashed in the driver side portion of the car’s windshield, which came to a stop on KLO Road just past a marked crosswalk.

“I was coming in to go to school. And I didn’t see anyone in the crosswalk and he just stepped out in front of me,” said the driver, who did not want to be named.

“I was blinded by the sun and I didn’t even see him until he hit my windshield.”

The driver was extremely worried about the condition of the pedestrian, who he says did not seem to speak much English.

The pedestrian was taken to hospital with what are believed to be minor injuries.

There is no word on whether any charges will be laid.
