The Vancouver firefighter’s union tweeted that the victim was transported to hospital and is in “stable” condition.

Cpl. Tania Visintin with the Vancouver Police Department added the driver stayed at the scene and is cooperating with police.

Photos from the scene showed a silver pickup truck that mounted the curb during the collision, and a firetruck nearby. At least four ambulances were also parked up the street.

Daily Hive has reached out to Purdy’s Chocolatier to ask about damage to the store.
