One person has been charged after an elderly pedestrian was struck and seriously injured by a vehicle in St. Catharines Tuesday morning.
Niagara police were called to the intersection of Glenridge Avenue and Glen Morris Drive around 8:11 a.m. for reports of a pedestrian having been struck.
Upon arrival they found a male pedestrian in his 70s in critical condition. He was taken to an out-of-region hospital with what is believed to be life-threatening injuries.
The intersection where the collision occurred remained closed as the region’s collision reconstruction unit continued to investigate, but has since re-opened.
Police have now charged an unnamed 41-year-old man from Newmarket with one count of “turn not in safety”.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the investigating officers by calling 905-688-4111, option 3, extension 1009472.
