Senior driver hits 80-year-old

It was no picnic for an 80-year-old Salmon Arm resident who was injured after being struck by a car driven by a 94-year-old man on Sunday.

The 80-year-old was sitting at a picnic table near the wharf in Marine Park at 2:42 p.m. when a 2007 Hyundai jumped the curb and struck the table at low speed.

The senior was knocked over and was pinned underneath the cement table.

After being extricated, the man was taken to Shuswap Lake General Hospital with a suspected ankle fracture.


Police say they are now requesting an ICBC review of the 94-year-old senior’s driving privileges.
