Pedestrian struck, killed

Vancouver has suffered their sixth pedestrian fatality of the year after an 83-year-old woman was struck and killed by a pick-up truck on Wednesday.

The incident happened just before 11:30 a.m. on November 7, when the elderly woman was struck while crossing East 30th Avenue along the east side of Main Street.

Vancouver Police indicate a black pick-up truck, making a right turn onto Main Street, struck the woman at a low speed but in spite of best efforts by paramedics, the woman succumbed to her injuries in hospital.

The driver of the truck is cooperating with investigators.

VPD’s Collision Investigation Unit is asking anyone with dash-cam footage, who may have been driving in the area on Wednesday morning, between 11:20 and 11:40 a.m., to contact them at 604-717-3012.
