Victoria police believe bad weather was a contributing factor in a collision Tuesday night that sent a 30-year-old Esquimalt woman to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Just before midnight, VicPD officers witnessed a left-turning vehicle strike a pedestrian at Bay Street and Westbourne Place. The driver and passenger immediately got out to offer assistance, said Const. Mike Russell.

The driver was issued a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian.
