A man is hurting both physically and financially after being hit by a vehicle Monday evening in North Burnaby.

At about 7 p.m., the young man was trying to cross the street when he stepped out from behind a parked car near Broadway and Springer Avenue, and was struck by a vehicle.

He was taken to Burnaby Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries to his foot and leg.

Perhaps more painful was the ticket police issued him for failing to yield to the vehicle that hit him.

"This vehicle had the right of way and the young man was not in a crosswalk or at an intersection," said Burnaby RCMP in a press release. "Burnaby RCMP Traffic Section routinely charge pedestrians with jaywalking offences especially in high collision areas where pedestrians have been hit while crossing illegally."
