Oak Bay police say a young man, possibly in his 20s suffered what appear to be non-life threatening injuries to a leg while crossing in the crosswalk. He was taken to hospital.
There were no witnesses to the incident that happened shortly after 2 p.m. today. Police do not believe speed was a factor. The marked crosswalk at that intersection has not proven a problem in the past, say police.
