That's a good point: pedestrians always have right of way when walking on the sidewalk:

When entering a road from a private road or driveway, you must yield to vehicles on the road and pedestrians on the sidewalk (Diagram 2-21).

It is beyond belief that the police would describe the incident as the pedestrian "walking into" the car! The driver is legally required to yield to pedestrians! It is hard to imagine a situation where the motorist would not be at fault for hitting a pedestrian on the sidewalk!
