UPDATE: Roads reopen after pedestrian struck in Saanich

Victim in hospital with life-threatening injuries

The roads in the area of Kenmore Road and Tyndall Avenue have now reopened after a pedestrian was struck earlier Saturday morning.

Police received a 911 call from bystanders around 8:30 a.m. Saturday after a man in a minivan hit a pedestrian on Tyndall Avenue.

The 60-year-old woman was taken to hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries, according to Sgt. Brad Brajcich of Saanich Police.

The driver stayed on scene and is being cooperative, said Brajcich.

Police continue to investigate, deploying a drone to take pictures of the crash site in order to recreate the scene.

Both the driver and woman are residents of Gordon Head, according to Brajcich.

Witnesses are asked to contact Saanich police.

Correction: A previous version of this story misidentified the intersection as Feltham Road and Tyndall Avenue. It has been updated with the correct intersection.
