CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - A female pedestrian suffered abrasions after being struck by a vehicle at an intersection in Charlottetown.

Charlottetown Police Deputy Chief Sean Coombs said the woman was crossing the street at about 9:15 a.m. on a crosswalk at the intersection of Euston Street and University Ave. when she was struck by a vehicle turning left onto Euston Street from University Ave.

The pedestrian was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by Island EMS and was expected to be released today.

The incident is under investigation and charges are pending, said Coombs.

“If the evidence is there, it (the charge) would be failing to yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk,’’ he said.
