A pedestrian was rushed to hospital Monday afternoon after a crash in Winnipeg’s downtown.

Shortly after 4 p.m. emergency crews responded to St. Mary Avenue and Carlton Street for reports of a crash involving a pedestrian and a vehicle, according to a police news release.

Police said the pedestrian was seriously injured.

It appears that a white SUV was involved in the crash and ended up crashing into the Convention Centre.

Originally police believed the crash involved a cyclist but later stated it was a pedestrian.

All four westbound lanes of St. Mary Avenue were closed for more than an hour.  The intersection has since re-opened.
