On Jan. 7, at approximately 4 p.m., the Fort St. John RCMP were called to the intersection of 100th avenue and the West Bypass Road. An 18 year-old male had crossed 100th avenue from Chances Gaming Centre to the West Bypass Road.

The male did not see a white SUV that was westbound on 100th avenue and walked into the driver’s side of the vehicle.
