Man hit by car while crossing highway

A pedestrian was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car on the Trans-Canada Highway on Monday night.

The man was crossing the highway westbound in front of the Travelodge near the Silver Bridge at the time.

“Upon reaching the south-bound lanes, a 2002 Toyota Echo with a female driver was unable to avoid the pedestrian and struck him,” said North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesman Cpl. Kevin Day.

“The male pedestrian was taken to Cowichan District Hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.”

Police continue to investigate the incident.
