A woman is in hospital and is expected to be there for a while, after being struck in a crosswalk in Central Saanich this morning.

Constable Glen Davies of the Central Saanich Police Service says the woman was in a crosswalk a the intersection of West Saanich Road and Wallace Drive at approximately 10:44 a.m. Dec. 4, when a vehicle entered it and struck her.

The driver of the vehicle, according to police, was turning from West Saanich Road onto Wallace Drive when their vehicle hit the pedestrian in the crosswalk.
