The Canadian Press - Halifax police say one of its officers struck a pedestrian Thursday while driving from a Tim Hortons.
Const. Pierre Bourdages says a woman was attempting to cross the sidewalk in front of the exit from the coffee shop parking lot when she was struck while the cruiser was making a right turn.
Bourdages says the officer looked both ways before turning onto the Bedford Highway, but he didn't see the woman even though she was trying to get his attention.
He says the officer immediately stopped and helped the woman, who fell down and had minor injuries to her hands.
He says a senior investigator decided no charges should be laid against the officer.
