Traffic Constable Neil Cholmondeley, of North Yorkshire Police’s Roads Policing Group, said:
Thankfully the injuries suffered by the pedestrian do not appear to be life threatening.
As the area was quite busy at the time I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to come forward. I would also like to speak to anyone who saw the pedestrian or the car prior to the incident and ask that they contact the police as soon as possible.
