A collision at Beacon Avenue and Resthaven Drive sent one woman to hospital with minor injuries after she was struck by a pickup truck and thrown from her mobility scooter while in the crosswalk.
Just before 10 a.m. Tuesday, witnesses say a woman tried to cross Beacon Avenue on the west side of the intersection, heading to the plaza.
A black pickup truck was turning right from Resthaven onto Beacon when the two collided.
A woman who witnessed the accident said the woman on the Medichair was bleeding, but conscious before she was taken away by the BC Ambulance Service.
