Windsor Police say that drinking and walking don’t mix after an incident in the downtown core Saturday afternoon.

Just before 3pm, a 24-year-old female was driving her 1999 Neon east on Wyandotte Street approaching a green light at Victoria Avenue. A transit Windsor Bus was stopped in the curb lane and as she was going by, a male pedestrian stepped out in front of the bus and into the path of the car. The driver managed to slow down considerably however the pedestrian was still struck.

When police arrived they found the victim, a 24-year-old male walking away from the scene of the accident. The male was spoken to by officers and was brought back to the collision scene.

The male who appeared to have difficulty walking said he was not injured. Paramedics checked him out and he insisted he was not hurt.

Police say that while speaking with the male they could detect the odor of alcohol on his breath, and a check showed that the male was out on bail and on conditions to not consume any alcohol. He was arrested and is facing a charge of breaching his recognizance.

There was no damage to the car and the women was not charged.
