An early morning accident on Friday in Abbotsford has put two pedestrians in hospital with serious injuries.
Police say a 20-year-old woman and a 6-year-old girl were in a crosswalk at Peardonville Road and Bevan Avenue at 7:15am, when they were struck by a pickup.
The force of the impact sent them nearly 60-feet.
Police say the driver is co-operating with the investigation and it’s possible the sunrise may have blinded him at the time.
The intersection will be closed for several hours.
