A woman who was hit by a car in Regina Wednesday afternoon has been charged with a traffic infraction.

Police said shortly before 6 p.m. CST, the woman, 47, stepped out into traffic downtown at 11th Avenue and Hamilton street.

She was hit by a car, her leg was injured and she was taken to hospital.

According to police, the vehicle had been moving "relatively slowly," but didn't have enough time to stop. No charges have been laid against the driver.

However, police have charged the pedestrian, under the Traffic Safety Act, with walking into the path of a vehicle when there isn't enough time for it to stop.

Police spokeswoman Elizabeth Popowich said it isn't common that a pedestrian is charged in these kinds of cases, but it happens.
