On Sunday, April 22, a man was struck by a vehicle heading southbound at the intersection of 2nd Street and 15th Avenue SW.

He and another man had been crossing west from 2nd Street on the south side of the intersection when the car failed to yield, hitting the man and throwing him across the road.

The 50-year-old man was taken to hospital with serious injuries, a release from the Calgary Police Service states, and the vehicle took off south along 2nd Street SW immediately following the collision.
