Sande Overpass accident sends pedestrian to hospital

The man has been fined for failing to yield to vehicle

A pedestrian is in hospital after being hit by a tow-truck this morning on the south side of the Sande Overpass in Terrace.

At 10:50 a.m., Terrace RCMP were called to the Hwy 16 accident on the right turning lane onto Keith Ave.

In a press release Wednesday afternoon Police say the collision involved a tow truck. Officers are still on scene investigating.

The tow-truck was towing a Waste Management vehicle at the time of the incident.

The man has non-life threatening injuries but was issued a violation ticket for failing to yield to the vehicle when not in the crosswalk. The driver was determined to not be at fault.

The turning lane is still closed but expected to reopen shortly.
