Struck, killed in crosswalk

Vancouver Police are investigating the city's first traffic fatality of 2018.

A pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle just before 6 p.m. Thursday at a crosswalk on Inverness Street at East King Edward Avenue.

The 55-year-old Vancouver man was struck by an eastbound pickup.

He was rushed to hospital with serious injuries, where he later died.

Sgt. Jason Robillard says the driver remained on scene and has co-operated with investigators.

Police believe rain and low light conditions were contributing factors in the collision. Speed and alcohol are not believed to have played a role.
