A young cyclist was hospitalized after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Fourth Street at Southside Market last week, RCMP say.

Emergency services personnel were called to the scene of the incident at Fourth Street and Edward Street on Wednesday, June 22, at around 7:15 p.m.

There, they found a nine-year-old girl had been struck by a vehicle while crossing the street at the crosswalk. The crash sent her onto the hood of the vehicle and she was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police say she experienced a fractured femur that would require surgery.

She was wearing a helmet and crossing at a marked crosswalk, RCMP said.

The driver was fined $368 under the Motor Vehicle Act for driving without due care and attention.

“Emergency services personnel wish to remind drivers to be aware of cyclists and pedestrians and to always drive with caution,” stated Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky. “Cyclists are reminded to always wear bike helmets, make yourselves visible and follow the rules of the road.”
