Halifax Regional Police is requesting the public’s assistance to identify the driver involved in a vehicle pedestrian collision that occurred in Halifax on October 28.
At 2 p.m., a 56-year old female was in the crosswalk behind the Mumford Road bus terminal when she was hit by a vehicle. The pedestrian believes the vehicle was royal blue in color but is unsure. The driver is described as a white man in his late forties or early fifties, with some facial hair.
The driver stopped to assist the pedestrian and asked if he should call the police, but at the time the woman didn’t believe she was injured and didn’t think this was necessary; however, she realized several days later that had she sustained non-life threatening injuries as a result of the collision and reported the incident to police on November 3.
