Traffic slowed after reports of a pedestrian struck in Colwood

Incident occurred on Metchosin Road near Sooke Road intersection

Traffic was slowed in Colwood Tuesday morning after reports of a pedestrian struck on Metchosin Road near the Sooke Road intersection.

Traffic on Metchosin and Sooke roads were reportedly slowed for some time.

Colwood Fire, BC Emergency Health Services and West Shore RCMP attended the scene.

Greg Chow, assistant fire chief for Colwood Fire Rescue, said a pedestrian was crossing the road in the crosswalk when they were struck. Due to wet weather, the vehicle that struck them was not able to stop in time. The pedestrian was taken to hospital but Chow was unable to speak to the seriousness of their injuries.

“The public has to be aware of changing conditions on the roads,” Chow said. “They have to give themselves additional space.”

As of about 9 a.m. traffic was moving again.
