Williams Lake, B.C. – Police are appealing for witnesses after a pedestrian was struck by a semi in Williams Lake.

It happened last Wednesday (Nov.18) at 1:15 p.m. when a male pedestrian was struck by a reversing truck in the 1100 block of Mackenzie Avenue, North.

Constable Toby Klassen says the male sustained major injuries to his leg and was transported to Kamloops for surgery.

He describes the truck as a white semi with flat deck trailers which had wood on it. The license plate number was not obtained.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Probably didn’t see the guy. People should take sightlines of truckers into account.

Now how does one get hit by a reversing semi. This unobservant so called pedestrian should be charged with undo care and attention, I’m serious. May also checked for drugs and alcohol.

A drunk idiot

We do not know if the person had a medical handicap or poor eyesight or hearing loss! Calling him an idiot makes no sense at all!

Perhaps walking while texting or talking on a cell phone?

Distracted walking is on the increase! Gotta love it when they walk into a parking meter!

Might be time for another new law!!

Yup, just what we need, another new law! So much for “survival of the fittest” and “natural selection” where the dumb ones die off! Now we create laws to keep them alive, and then we let them breed, haha!

Confusing story. Is this a hit and run or did the driver just not realize he’s hit someone?

Does not say it was a hit and run. Driver could easily not have known.
