An accident in Trail this morning has sent one woman to hospital, according to RCMP Sgt. Darren Oelke.
“About 9:20 a.m., a Canada Post worker was crossing Victoria St. southbound on a green light when she was struck by a pickup truck making a left turn from Cedar Ave. onto Victoria St.,” Oelke said.
“The 58-year-old postal worker was taken to hospital by ambulance with undertermined head/neck injuries. The injuries are not believed to be life threatening.”
He said the driver of the truck was uninjured.
