A pedestrian is dead after an SUV struck her while she was crossing a street in Vancouver’s Westside neighbourhood.

The 67-year-old woman was walking in a marked crosswalk at Yew Street when she was hit by an SUV turning left onto West 49th Avenue. She was rushed to hospital with serious injuries but didn’t survive.

The 74-year-old driver stayed at the scene and is cooperating with investigators. The SUV was towed by police for mechanical testing, and while the cause of the crash is under investigation, alcohol and speed aren’t thought to be factors.

The Vancouver Police Department says this is the 11th pedestrian death of the year.
