Police are seeking witnesses to a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian in southeast Calgary on Monday night that seriously injured a young woman.

Two people were crossing the intersection at Canyon Meadows Drive and Deer Ridge Drive S.E. around 10:15 p.m.

One of the pedestrians — a woman in her 20s — was struck when a 2009 Hyundai Accent travelling northbound on Deer Ridge Drive began to turn westbound onto Canyon Meadows Drive, police said.

The pedestrian was thrown a "significant distance" and sustained serious injuries. Police said she was hospitalized and is in serious but stable condition.

The driver, a man in his 70s, remained at the scene. Calgary Police Service investigators are not considering speed and impairment to be factors in the accident.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision and has not yet spoken with police is asked to contact the CPS non-emergency number 403-266-1234.
