An 18-year-old girl was sent to hospital today (March 3, 2017) after being struck by a vehicle on Columbia Street.

Kamloops RCMP were called to the scene 2 p.m.  Cpl. Jodie Shelkie said a pedestrian was crossing Columbia Street from the south to the north in the crosswalk near Sahali Terrace.  A vehicle travelling up Columbia in the right lane failed to see the girl in the crosswalk and struck her.

The girl received non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Royal Inland Hospital via ambulance.

    Someone I know was herein in this intersection last year. People do not pay attention.

    That intersection’s crosswalk has a flashing amber light. To not see the pedestrian is one thing; to not see the flashing lights (if they were activated) or the pedestrian or other stopped cars indicates a significant lack of attention.
