A male pedestrian was killed after being struck by a vehicle Thursday night in Errington.
The incident happened on the Alberni Highway near Fairdowne Road just after 10 p.m. Oceanside RCMP, Errington Fire Department first responders and BC Ambulance personnel attended.
According to Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Travis Strong, the man was walking along the travel portion of Highway 19A when he was struck by a passing vehicle.
