One female has been transported to hospital with serious injuries after she was struck by a vehicle downtown.

Paramedics say a female pedestrian was struck in the area of Queen and St. Patrick streets at around 7 a.m.

She was taken to a trauma centre for treatment and her injuries are believed to be serious but not life-threatening.

The eastbound and westbound lanes of Queen Street were shut down in the area for the collision reconstruction but all lanes have since reopened.
