Collision sends Nanaimo pedestrian to hospital with serious injuries

RCMP are seeking anyone with information or dashcam video of a collision that sent a Nanaimo woman to the hospital.

At around 11:20pm on Febuary 28th, at the intersection of Mostar Road/Rutherford Road and Highway 19a, it’s believed a gray older model Volkswagen Jetta in the slow lane struck the woman.

RCMP investigators believe the victim was trying to walk through the intersection from Mostar Road towards Rutherford Road when struck.

The adult female driver of the vehicle stayed at the scene while the victim was treated by attending BC Paramedics. The victim was transported to the Nanaimo hospital for emergency medical treatment.

Police ruled out drugs or alcohol as a factor, and the pedestrian was noted to be wearing dark non-reflective clothing.
