Hamilton Police Service report that at 1:00 PM on October 25, an 88-year-old man was walking south across Queenston Rd. at Delena Ave. S. toward the bus stop on the south side of Queenston. Part-way across, the pedestrian was struck by a 25-year-old male driving a Honda Civic heading east in the curb lane, after another motorist stopped for him and waved him to carry on.
The pedestrian was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries and is currently in serious but stable condition. According to police, alcohol was not involved and the driver was not speeding. Detective-Constables Walter Niblock and Steve Ellis ask any witnesses to contact them at 905-546-4753.
According to Sgt Terri-Lynn Collings of Hamilton Police Service, "So far this year there have been 177 pedestrian-involved collisions with 8 resulting in death." By comparison, 2010 saw "248 pedestrian-involved collisions with 9 resulting in death."
Update: this blog entry originally stated in error that the driver of the Honda Civic waved the pedestrian on. You can jump to the changed paragraph.
