A 16-year-old pedestrian in North Bay was injured Oct. 30 when they intentionally walked into traffic and was struck by an ambulance heading east.

In a news release Monday, North Bay Ontario Provincial Police said they were called at 10:15 p.m. and "responded to a report of a pedestrian jumping into traffic on Highway 17, just east of the hospital in North Bay."

The ambulance driver was not able to avoid the collision, police said.

"The ambulance was not responding to a call for service at the time, nor was it transporting a patient," the release said.
