The 46-year-old female pedestrian was taken to the hospital for the treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The police are looking at whether provincial Motor Vehicle Act ticket.

The business has posted a closure notice on its website: “Due to unforeseen circumstances the studio will be closed until further notice. Everyone in studio is okay.”

The studio said it expects to be back offering classes by Saturday.
