A 19-year-old pedestrian remains in hospital after being struck by a vehicle on Pembina Highway Saturday afternoon, police say.

The incident took place shortly after 2 p.m., in the northbound lanes of Pembina near McGillivray Boulevard.

The woman was taken to hospital in unstable condition but has since been upgraded to stable.

Police said they believe she ran in front of the vehicle, and its driver — who stayed at the scene of the accident and spoke with officers — had no time to avoid a collision.
