KAMLOOPS - At approximately 7:40 a.m. Monday a 24-year-old male pedestrian in a marked crosswalk was struck by a female driver on 12 Avenue and Battle Street. 

Cpl. Cheryl Bush, spokesperson for the Kamloops RCMP, said the pedestrian was taken to hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The 29-year-old female driver remained at the scene. Neither speed nor alcohol are believed to be factors, but the sun glare in the driver's eyes may have been a factor as she was driving east-bound. The vehicle was towed from the scene.
