Man suffers head injury after falling in grocery store parking lot

Abbotsford Police say slight impact with vehicle preceded the fall

A 78-year-old Abbotsford man is in hospital with a serious head injury after an incident in the parking lot of the Real Canadian Superstore on Gladwin Road on Monday afternoon.

Const. Ian MacDonald said police received calls at 2:35 p.m. that a man who was walking through the parking lot had fallen and hit his head on the ground following a slight impact with a vehicle.

MacDonald said a 77-year-old woman was driving a Toyota Matrix at a low speed when she either slightly nudged the pedestrian or the pedestrian bumped into her vehicle.

He said neither the driver, who remained on the scene, or witnesses were clear exactly who hit whom, but the man lost his balance and fell to the ground.

MacDonald said police are looking into whether the man had a pre-existing medical condition.

He remains in hospital in serious, but stable, condition.
