The development stems from a Sept. 15 incident when, at about 3 a.m., a 66-year-old Prince George man was allegedly struck while crossing an uncontrolled and unmarked intersection at Fifth Street and Victoria Avenue.

"The Prince George RCMP wish to remind the public that drivers must yield to pedestrians crossing at all intersections, whether there is a marked crosswalk or not," RCMP said.

Khan was issued a summons to appear in court on May 22.
