PEDESTRIAN STRUCK AT CROSSWALK ON BURNSIDE RD W

Saanich Police’s Traffic Safety Unit is investigating after a 17-year-old was struck in a crosswalk on Burnside Rd West last night.

On Thursday, June 23, 2022, just before 9 p.m. the pedestrian was crossing Burnside Rd West at Wascana St when he was struck by a vehicle travelling westbound on Burnside Rd West. The driver remained on scene and is cooperating with police, who have ruled out impairment as a factor in the crash. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and remains in critical condition.

Investigators are seeking anyone with dashcam footage to come forward to police, including any witnesses that may have seen the events leading up to the crash but have yet to speak to an officer.

The vehicle involved is a silver 2006 Pontiac Montana van.
