An elderly woman has been rushed to hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle on Highway 33 West in Rutland shortly after 3 p.m. on Monday afternoon.

According to witnesses at the scene the vehicle, a grey Nissan SUV, was travelling east bound on Highway 33 West when it suddenly struck the pedestrian, a 76 year old Kelowna woman, who was crossing the highway between Asher Road and Roxby Road. The pedestrian was not in a marked cross walk at the time of the collision.

“The driver of the vehicle, a 46 year old Kelowna woman, remained at scene and is co-operating with police,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

“The east bound lanes of the highway were partially closed, and traffic was affected for several hours while an RCMP Traffic reconstructionist conducted a detailed analysis of the scene.”

Kelowna Municipal Traffic Services, and Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstructionist Services continue to investigate the causal factors of this crash.
