THAMESFORD, ONT -- Only broken pieces of plastic remain at the scene where a pedestrian was struck in Thamesford Tuesday evening.
The person, neighbours believe to be male, was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries shortly after 6:30 p.m. before being transfered to a London hospital.
A neighbour who lives directly in front of the crash site on Allen Street says he witnessed emergency responders performing CPR.
OPP investigators remained at the scene into the overnight hours.
The crash happened just north of a rail overpass, where a sign marks the speed limit as 50 km/h.
Police say the pedestrian was walking southbound when they were struck.
While police have not completed their investigation into this crash, two neighbours told CTV News few drivers obey the limit.
They also point out their stretch of homes to the north of the rail overpass do not have sidewalks while those to the south of the structure do.
