Bright sunshine may have played a role when a young pedestrian was struck by a vehicle Tuesday at the corner of 58th Street and 52A Avenue in Red Deer.

City RCMP said that an 11-year-old boy was struck as he crossed the road at about 8:45 a.m. The boy was taken to Red Deer Regional Hospital for x-rays of his leg, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

RCMP said they believe sun glare may have been a contributing factor in the collision.

The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and no charges have been laid at this time.

RCMP would like to speak to a man who witnessed the collision. The man, approximately 19 or 20 years of age, stayed at the scene to assist initially, but left before police arrived.

The witness is described as possibly driving a black Grand Am, wearing a black hoodie and black track pants, and possibly of East Indian descent.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or with information related to it, is asked to please call Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575.
