Pedestrian taken to hospital after being hit by car in downtown Winnipeg

A person was taken to hospital overnight after being hit by a car in downtown Winnipeg, police say.

No update was given on the person’s condition Saturday morning by an officer with the Winnipeg Police Service’s duty office, which handles media requests when its public information office is closed.

A white car with a damaged front end was towed from the median on Portage Avenue around 8 a.m. Saturday.

Earlier Saturday morning, yellow evidence markers sat on top of the car and on the ground around it.

The area reopened to traffic after 8 a.m.
