SUDBURY -- Timmins police say the pedestrian involved in Tuesday's crash, a man experiencing homelessness, was at fault in the incident.

A collision involving a vehicle and a male pedestrian happened at the intersection of Algonquin Boulevard, the city's busiest four-lane road through town, and Birch Street Tuesday afternoon.

Police and fire crews were called to the scene and the man was taken to hospital via ambulance with a serious, but non-life threatening head injury.

The road was closed to traffic for a couple of hours.

Marc Depatie, the community liaison officer for Timmins Police Service, said the man remains in hospital Wednesday, but no update on his condition.
