A pedestrian was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries Wednesday afternoon after being struck by a vehicle north of downtown.
The male pedestrian was hit just before 1 p.m. near 97th Street and 114th Avenue.
Edmonton police are investigating. Motorists are advised to avoid the area. Road closures are in effect.
