A pedestrian was airlifted to hospital and is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle.


On December 8, 2021 at 7p.m. the Port Hardy RCMP, Port Hardy Fire Rescue, and Emergency Health Services attended the area of Granville St. and Highview Rd. following a report that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle.


The driver of the vehicle remained on-scene, and is cooperating with police. The driver of the vehicle received a violation ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act.
 

"Our thoughts are with the person and their family, and we wish them a speedy recovery", says Constable Julie Miller, media relations officer for Port Hardy RCMP. Although this collision is still under investigation, it appears at this time that speed and alcohol are not suspected in the incident.


The Port Hardy RCMP want to remind the public to be aware of road conditions, the reduced visibility during dark winter nights and are encouraging them to wear bright or reflective clothing.
