Three pedestrians have been hit in two separate collisions in Victoria this week.

On Monday, a man was struck by a vehicle in the unit-block of Gorge Road East around 5:30 p.m. The man was sent to hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and was also sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A day later, two pedestrians were taken to hospital after being hit by a tour bus in a marked crosswalk on Douglas and Belleville streets around 7:30 a.m. The tour bus was travelling northbound, and was turning left from Douglas to Belleville when it struck the two pedestrians. Both sustained non- life-threatening injuries.

Victoria police continue to investigate. Charges of failing to yield to a pedestrian are now being suggested in the collision involving the bus.
