“A semi-truck – that belonged to a concrete company – travelling eastbound on Russell made a left hand turn, northbound on Johnston. The female was crossing on a green light when she was struck,” Sears said.

A witness, who alerted PAN to the incident, wrote that the truck was pulling a flatbed trailer.

“Not only was the woman run down by the truck, it didn’t stop immediately and the rear wheels ran over her again!” Michael McCarthy wrote to PAN.

Sears said the motorist was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention and failing to yield to a pedestrian.

PAN has reached out to WorkSafeBC to ask if they have opened an investigation.
