At 9:45 last night the Flin Flon RCMP received a report of a vehicle pedestrian collision on highway ten approximately a kilometer south of the city. The investigation has determined that a pickup truck driven by a 59 year old man from Schist Lake was travelling south when it struck a 35 year old man from Sherridon who was lying on the highway. The driver of the vehicle stopped at the scene and immediately flagged down another motorist for assistance in contacting 911.
The pedestrian was transported to hospital in critical condition and later flown to Winnipeg and has been upgraded to stable condition. Flin Flon RCMP and an RCMP Forensic Collision Reconstructionist continue to investigate.
