At approx. 3 PM Saturday, a 911 call was received reporting a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian in the 200 block of 18th St N. Witnesses to the incident indicated that the adult male pedestrian darted out into the street, and the driver of the southbound vehicle had no time to stop or react. The 29 year old male was taken by ambulance to the Brandon Regional Health Centre for treatment of what appeared to be an injury to his lower leg / foot.  The male refused to be seen at the hospital leaving almost immediately.  There are no charges being contemplated against the driver of the vehicle, given the evidence gathered at the scene. There was also no evidence to suggest the pedestrian was attempting to harm himself, rather a very poorly calculated risk.
