A Lower Sackville man was issued a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian after hitting a pedestrian who was crossing a marked crosswalk on Wednesday night in Lower Sackville.

The incident took place just after 7 p.m. at the crosswalk at the intersection of Beaverbank Road and Glendale Drive.

RCMP say a 27-year old male was crossing the road and had the right of way when a 26-year-old male made a left turn and hit him.

Police say the driver admitted he was distracted, and he did not have time to stop when he saw the pedestrian.

The man struck has minor injuries, but did not want to go to a hospital.
