A pedestrian has sustained critical injuries after being struck by a vehicle in Qualicum Beach on Monday afternoon.

On February 12, 2024 at 3:50 p.m., Oceanside RCMP, Qualicum Beach Fire Rescue and British Columbia Ambulance Service responded to a collision involving a pedestrian and a vehicle at the controlled intersection of Memorial Avenue and Fern Road West in Qualicum Beach.
