A Kitimat man is in a Vancouver hospital with life-threatening injuries after he was hit by a pickup Thursday morning.
Kitimat RCMP say the 47-year-old was crossing the street near the City Centre Mall at about 7 am.
Investigators say preliminary evidence indicates the man crossed Haisla Boulevard near Tsimshian Boulevard and into the path of the truck.
The 25-year-old man at the wheel of the truck is cooperating with RCMP and police say there is no evidence of drugs or alcohol being a factor.
RCMP are looking for more witnesses to the collision. Anyone with information should contact the Kitimat RCMP at (250) 632-7211.
Kitimat RCMP are reminding drivers and pedestrians to take extra caution at all intersections with the shorter hours of daylight and with winter weather approaching.
