A man is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after a pedestrian-involved collision in Prince George.

According to RCMP, first responders were called to Ospika Boulevard and Davis Road around 5 p.m. last night (Oct. 4) following reports of a vehicle collision.

This is the same intersection where city crews recently upgraded its crosswalk features, including a rectangular rapid flashing lights with push-button activation to alert drivers.

An investigation ensued as emergency services tended to the man and transported him to hospital to be treated for his injuries.

The driver of the vehicle stayed at the scene along with witnesses as police took statements and gathered evidence.

Ospika and Davis has since reopened to traffic after a portion of it was closed.

The intersection was one of two with new pedestrian-activated lights installed last week, the city says, as part of its strategy to improve 26 existing crosswalks and implement 17 new ones.
