London Police say an adult male pedestrian was taken to hospital for non-life-threatening injuries Tuesday after being struck by a minivan in the city’s east end.
Officials say it happened around 3:12 p.m. at the intersection of Dundas Street and Florence Street when a pedestrian crossing from the north side of Dundas to the south side was struck by a westbound minivan.
The pedestrian was taken to hospital by paramedics, and the female driver of the minivan remained at the scene, police said.
The collision resulted in Dundas Street being closed for around an hour and a half from Highbury Avenue to Hale Street. Police reopened the roadway just after 5 p.m. after it was determined the pedestrian’s injuries were not serious.
“That’s exactly what determines whether we open the roadway is the extent of the injuries,” said Cst. Ken Steeves. “If they are not life-threatening, then we will open up the roadway and we will continue with the investigation. If the injuries are more serious, then we have to do a more detailed investigation.”
The investigation is ongoing. Police have not said whether any charges are pending.
