Emergency crews responding to the scene of a bike and motor vehicle accident this afternoon at the corner of Greig Ave and Sparks St.

Woman struck by SUV downtown

"It just drove right over her," says bystander describing what happened

A woman struck while on her bike was concsious and responsive to the medical team helping her after an SUV ran her over at the corner of Greig Ave. and Sparks St. around 1:40 p.m today.

Bystander Wayne Jaeger said that the woman looked between 18-25 and was in the Sparks pedestrian crosswalk when she was hit.

A blue-grey Toyota RAV4 made a right turn onto Greig and struck the woman, and she was dragged under the vehicle out onto the street, he said.

“They pulled her out from underneath the car,” he said of the emergency crew that arrived within minutes.

“She’s lucky to be alive,” said another bystander.

The police were interviewing the driver and other witnesses immediately after the accident.
