Vehicles strike pedestrians

Salmon Arm police are investigating a collision between two vehicles and a pedestrian.

According to Cpl. Wasylenski a westbound Dodge Ram 1500 truck, was waiting to turn off Highway 1 onto 30th Street.

The truck apparently failed to yield and collided with an eastbound Ford Fusion.

“The force of the impact sent the Ford Fusion careening to pedestrians who were waiting at the intersection for the walk signal," stated Wasylenski in a release.

Both pedestrians were transported to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the truck was not hurt and the driver of the Ford Fusion received minor injuries.

The driver of the truck was charged with failing to yield.
