As part of our continued focus on pedestrian safety, Halifax Regional Police and Halifax District RCMP have committed to releasing a monthly vehicle/pedestrian collision report to provide police and citizens with more contextual information on this issue.
During the month of February, there were 14 vehicle/pedestrian collisions in Halifax. Thirteen of these took place in HRP jurisdiction and one occurred in RCMP jurisdiction. Year over year, this represents a decrease from the 23 incidents reported in February of 2014.
Thirty-nine per cent of vehicle/pedestrian collisions reported in January and February of 2015 occurred in crosswalks. Of the 38 pedestrians involved:
- 10 reported no injury
- 19 experienced minor injuries
- 7 experienced moderate injuries
- 2 passed away as a result of the collision
