Prince George, B.C. – A man has been taken to hospital after being struck by a vehicle at 20th and Upland  this afternoon.

His condition is not immediately known.

RCMP  are investigating,


this is a terrible area for people walking off the sidewalk right into traffic, ALL the time. there is one crosswalk and I never see anyone at it, but every other corner or mid street, they just walk out and it is up to you to be watching for them. It drives me nuts!!!

Hopefully they’re not badly hurt. Drivers need to slow down, and be more vigilant. So many pedestrians have been hit lately. Its very disturbing.

They removed the crosswalk from that location to a block over by Harveys Muffler but people keep trying to cross where A&W and Petro Canada is…and the cars coming down the highway turn an angle just as you reach that point where this picture is showing.

Bad corner everybody crosses there instead of using authorized crosswalk not even 150 feet away and sunshine north it’s on a corner drivers coming around cannot see until last few seconds I’ve seen lots of pedestrians hit there because it inconveniences them to walk another 150 feet to the authorized crosswalk and then they play chicken with the traffic sometimes they make it sometimes not

Also even though it’s not a legal crosswalk pedestrians still have the right of way so drivers are usually screwed either way on that corner

Even at 10kph I can’t stop on a Dime!

Dearth, if it is not a legal crosswalk pedestrians do not have the right of way. If a pedestrian walks out in front of a moving vehicle where there is no marked crosswalk the pedestrian is at fault.

It is a double lane and the problem is one car stops and the other one in other lane keeps going.

I wish I would have had a video camera footage for this older woman on 15th avenue. My passenger could not believe I got stopped in time. She was walking briskly then made a 90 at a sprint never looked once when she ran in front of traffic.
