In other RCMP news, RCMP responded last week to a collision between a pedestrian and a motor vehicle.

At about 930 am, Nov. 19, RCMP arrived at the intersection of 11th Avenue South and Baker Street. A 62-year-old man was on the crosswalk and had the right of way. A vehicle making a right hand turn hit the pedestrian, who was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and was later released.

“This is a reminder to all drivers to ensure crosswalks are clear before proceeding through,” said Cst. Katie Forgeron with the Cranbrook RCMP. “We are thankful this incident was not as serious as it could have been and that the injuries were not life threatening.”
