The elderly victim of an afternoon vehicle on pedestrian collision at the corner of First Avenue Northwest and Athabasca Street West is loaded into the back of an ambulance. She did not appear to suffer any serious injuries, but was being transported to hospital as a precaution, according to Cst. Jay Sills with the Moose Jaw Police Service.

The driver of an SUV that struck a pedestrian Tuesday afternoon has been charged.

"There was a pedestrian crossing the street and a vehicle was turning left onto First Avenue Northwest off of Athabasca," Cst. Jay Sills with the Moose Jaw Police Service, said at the scene of the collision Tuesday. "(The driver) didn't see the pedestrian and struck her."

The victim, an elderly woman, was transported by EMS to the Moose Jaw Union Hospital. She was speaking with first responders before being loaded into the ambulance.

Sills said the vehicle was still on scene and the pedestrian appeared to be "fine at this point," but that she had been taken to hospital for "further evaluation."

"It could be a lot worse, when a big vehicle like this strikes someone," Sills added. "But at this moment, it looks like everybody will be okay."

At that point charges hadn't been determined, but the driver of the SUV has since been charged with fail to yield.
