Crash south of Vanderhoof sends two pedestrians to hospital

The pedestrians were under the influence of alcohol and dressed in dark clothing

The RCMP were called to the scene of a collision on Kenny Dam Road, south of Vanderhoof, on Tuesday at 7:03 p.m.

A male and female had been walking across the road to speak with the occupants of a car that was parked in the middle of the road. The two pedestrians were under the influence of alcohol and dressed in dark clothing.

According to the RCMP, the driver of the vehicle did not see the pedestrians as visibility was obstructed from the headlights of the parked car.

The pedestrians sustained injuries to their lower extremities, but the injuries are not life-threatening. As of Wednesday, both the male and female were still in hospital.

The investigation is ongoing.
