2 pedestrian-vehicle collisions send 3 to hospital in HRM
2 people not seriously hurt, 3rd person suffered non-life threatening injuries
Two people were struck by vehicles in Halifax Wednesday night, in two separate incidents.
Wednesday around 10 p.m., a motorcycle was travelling southbound on the Bedford Highway struck a pedestrian on the highway near the Bedford Place Mall.
Halifax Regional Police said a 24-year-old man was attempting to cross the highway without using a crosswalk.
The 20-year-old motorcycle driver then struck the pedestrian, throwing him off the bike.
The 24-year-old pedestrian was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The motorcycle driver didn't appear injured but was taken to hospital as a precaution.
Earlier in the evening a 14-year-old girl was struck by a car while attempting to cross the road at a crosswalk on Pleasant Street in Dartmouth.
The girl and another teenage girl had just gotten off a southbound Metro Transit bus on Pleasant Street at around 6:30 p.m.
The girls were crossing at a crosswalk in front of the bus when another vehicle in the passing lane struck one of the girls.
She was taken to the IWK Health Centre where she was treated and released.
The other girl and the driver of the car were not injured.
No charges have been laid in either case and police say both incidents are still under investigation.
