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 January, there were 24 vehicle/pedestrian collisions in Halifax. Twenty-one of these took place in HRP jurisdiction and three occurred in RCMP jurisdiction. Year over year, this represents a decrease from the 27 incidents reported in January 2014.
Forty-two per cent of vehicle/pedestrian collisions reported in January 2015 occurred in crosswalks. Of the 24 pedestrians involved:
- 8 reported no injury
- 11 experienced minor injuries
- 3 experienced moderate injuries
- 2 passed away as a result of the collision
