A Vancouver pedestrian was sent flying through a shop window after being struck by a pickup truck on Friday.

It happened around 4 p.m. at the intersection of Granville Street and West 11th Avenue.

Vancouver police said the pedestrian was knocked through the glass window of a Purdy’s chocolate shop and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The Vancouver firefighters’ union said its members were called to the scene for a two-vehicle accident.

“Amazingly victim transported in stable condition,” said the union.
