NEWS W FATAL ACCIDENT
Pedestrian struck by motorist Cheryl Weirda STAFF REPORTER
A 59-year-old woman died after being hit by a car while trying to cross the road Monday night, police say. Around 6:20 p.m., RCMP say a woman was crossing Bernard Avenue at Burtch Road—an intersection governed by a traf-
fic light—when she was hit by a Honda Civic, driven by a 49-year-old woman. That car had been in the process of turning left from Burtch Road onto Bernard Avenue when it made contact with the 59year-old pedestrian, police say. “The 59-year-old female was transported to
Kelowna General Hospital by ambulance, where she succumbed to her injuries a short time later,” said Staff Sgt. John Jordan. Her name is not being released at the request of her family. Police say alcohol was not a factor in the crash. “The investigation is ongoing and no charg-
es have been laid at this point,” said Jordan. The death is the first recorded traffic-related fatality in Kelowna this year. For the Week of April 6-April 11, 2011 (or while quantities last)

The tomato is the fruit of a vine native to South America where, historically, it was thought to be poisonous. Some tomato advocates, however, claimed the fruit had aphrodisiac powers and, in fact, the French called them pommes d’amour, meaning “love apples.” Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A,B & C, potassium and iron. They have as much ﬁbre as a slice of whole-wheat bread and only 35 calories.
