Witnesses describe what happened as paramedics attend to injured woman on Spadina Ave Thursday.

 

padina Ave was temporarily closed in the 45000 block around noon on Thursday after an elderly woman was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street.

 

BC Ambulance Services paramedics were on the scene and treating the seriously injured woman within minutes.

 

It's unclear exactly what happened, however there were plenty of witnesses on hand to assist police in sorting it out.

 

Pedestrians should never assume that drivers can see them and take caution when crossing the street.

 

UPDATE: Sources told the Voice Thursday that the woman will recover.
