A woman has been rushed to hospital Thursday morning in serious condition after being struck by a vehicle in downtown Kelowna.

An RCMP officer came across the scene of a pedestrian involved collision Dec. 1 at 10:51 a.m., in the intersection of Ellis Street and Leon Avenue in downtown Kelowna.

“Preliminary findings at the collision scene suggest that the pedestrian was walking east across Ellis Street when she was struck by a grey Toyota Tundra pickup truck,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

The driver, a 35-year-old Kelowna woman, remained at the scene and co-operated with the investigation.

The investigation into this crash remains ongoing at this time. Police are looking for any additional witnesses.
