UPDATE: Roads reopen after pedestrian struck in Saanich

Bystanders called police at around 8:30 a.m. Saturday after a man in a minivan hit a pedestrian on Tyndall Avenue. The collision closed the area for several hours as investigators examined the site with their tools, including a drone that took pictures of the site to recreate the scene.

The driver stayed on scene and cooperated with investigators, said Sgt. Brad Brajcich Saturday.

Brajcich said both the driver and the woman are residents of Saanich’s Gordon Head neighbourhood.

Saturday’s collision marks the most recent collision that involve an older pedestrian and a vehicle.

A 68-year-old North Saanich resident died of his injuries in early January after a vehicle struck him on Dec. 30 in North Saanich.
