A 24-year-old man was hit by a vehicle in Halifax late Monday night, marking the second crosswalk incident in one day.

It happened just before 11 p.m. at the intersection of the Bedford Highway and Larry Uteck Boulevard. 

Halifax police Sgt. Gordon Graham said the collision was similar to the one that happened earlier that morning at the corner of Cunard and Robie streets.

"Both were basically the same, person going through the green light making a turn ended up hitting a pedestrian in the crosswalk. So we want people to be cautious when are going through intersections to check for pedestrians,” he said.

The man was taken to hospital with a leg injury.

Police said it was foggy and dark. They said based on their investigation, they won’t be charging the 58-year-old woman who was driving.
