Good Samaritan hurt
An attempted good deed has landed a woman in hospital.
She was hit by a car when she stopped her own vehicle to come to the aid of an injured pedestrian late Wednesday night on 96 Avenue near 96 Street.
It was dark out, with a light drizzle, but the street lights were on.
A police report said the sequence of events began when another woman tried to jaywalk across 96 Avenue around 8 p.m.
She was hit by a vehicle.
The second woman was driving by, saw the first woman lying on the roadway and pulled over.
As she was attending to the downed woman, a second vehicle hit them both.
The injured women were rushed to Royal Columbian Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
The drivers of the vehicles responsible for both collisions remained at the scene and are described as “cooperative” by police.
Charges are pending.
