CORNWALL – A pedestrian is in hospital with very serious injuries after being hit by a car on Ninth Street Monday morning.

Cornwall police say the collision happened around 5:15 a.m. near the intersection of Laflamme Avenue (east of Canadian Tire).

“The motorist remained at the scene and called 911, at which time emergency services attended and the pedestrian was subsequently transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries,” spokeswoman Stephanie MacRae told Cornwall Newswatch.

A section of Ninth Street was closed this morning for a police investigation but has since reopened.

The investigation is ongoing.
