UPDATE: pedestrian taken to hospital after collision in Saanich

Traffic is impacted in Cedar Hill Cross Road area

A Saanich pedestrian was taken to hospital after being struck by the driver of a Mini Cooper near the intersection of Cedar Hill Cross and Blenkinsop roads Wednesday morning.

Saanich emergency crews were called around 9:30 a.m. on March 11 after an elderly woman was hit by a female driver turning right out of an apartment complex onto Cedar Hill Cross Road towards Blenkinsop road.

Paramedics transported the pedestrian to the hospital with possible injuries just before 10 a.m. Three police vehicles and one fire truck remain on scene.

Traffic in the area is impacted as Cedar Hill Cross Road is closed between Blenkinsop Road and McKenzie Avenue and drivers are being redirected.

Saanich Police released a traffic advisory that the 3900 block on Cedar Hill Crossing Road will be closed to all traffic. a Saanich Police collision analyst is en route and police are unsure when the road will re-open.

Police are still unsure how serious the injuries are of the struck pedestrian. Sgt. Jon Semkiw says if injuries are minor police could be done in an hour, but if injuries are serious police will be on scene for much longer.

More to come.
