At 7:47 p.m., police responded to a motor vehicle/pedestrian collision in the 0-100 block of Purcell's Cove Road. Two pedestrians were crossing Purcell's Cove Road when they were struck by a vehicle travelling outbound. It appears that the inbound traffic had stopped for the pedestrians to cross but the driver of the outbound vehicle didn't see them and struck them as they crossed. The pedestrians weren't in a crosswalk at the time of the accident. The two pedestrians, a 77-year-old woman and an 81-year-old woman, were taken to hospital with injuries that are considered life threatening. The driver of the vehicle wasn't injured. This collision is still under investigation by Halifax Regional Police.
