The area of Third Avenue and Nicola Street is temporarily closed while police investigate a motor-vehicle collision involving a pedestrian.

On February 2, 2021, around 11:41 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers responded to a report of a pedestrian who had been struck by a motor vehicle downtown. The pedestrian, an adult man, was taken to hospital by BC Emergency Health Services. His injuries are believed to be serious, but non-life threatening in nature. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene.

"Police are in the early stages of their investigation as they continue to gather physical and eye witness evidence at the scene," said Constable Crystal Evelyn, spokesperson for the Kamloops RCMP. "Although the investigation is still ongoing at this time, initial findings suggest the pedestrian and the driver were known to each other and the circumstances surrounding the incident may have involved criminality."

A woman was arrested and taken into police custody.

Anyone who witnessed the event and has not yet spoken with police is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2021-3551.
