Bastion Square Parkade was briefly closed down on Tuesday after a single-vehicle accident sent two people to hospital.

At approximately 11:30 a.m., a driver entering the downtown parkade suffered a medical event that caused their vehicle to collide with a pedestrian and multiple parked vehicles.

According to VicPD, the car hit the pedestrian, three cement posts, and another parked vehicle before striking yet another cement post and a parked motorcycle, after which the vehicle came to rest.

The incident sent the driver and the struck pedestrian to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The parkade was closed for a number of hours, but has since reopened.

An investigation into the incident is currently ongoing.
