The roads in the area of Kenmore Road and Tyndall Avenue have now reopened after a pedestrian was struck earlier Saturday morning.

Police received a 911 call from bystanders around 8:30 a.m. Saturday after a man in a minivan hit a pedestrian on Tyndall Avenue.

The 60-year-old woman was taken to hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Brad Brajcich of Saanich Police.

The driver stayed on scene and is being cooperative, said Brajcich.

Both the driver and woman are residents of Gordon Head, according to Brajcich.
