St. Albert RCMP responded to a report of a pedestrian and vehicle collision on Wednesday.

At 11:50 on Wednesday morning, police responded to the report on Grandora Crescent, where a six year old girl who was riding a scooter was non-fatally hit by a car backing out of the driveway.

The girl had stopped behind the parked car on a driveway, possibly to look at something on the ground. The driver of the parked vehicle was getting ready to leave and proceeded to back out of the driveway, not seeing the girl. 

After the collision, the driver of the vehicle stopped immediately and rendered assistance to the conscious child. The girl was transported via ambulance to the Stollery Hospital, where she was seen by physicians and later released with no substantial injuries.

St. Albert RCMP are thankful that the child was not injured severely and want to remind citizens that the weather is nice, small children are outside playing, and they may not be paying attention to their surroundings. The RCMP also recommends that parents educate their children about bike/scooter safety, road safety, and playing outside safely.
