According to Vancouver Police, the incident happened just after 7 pm when a pedestrian was walking northbound, crossing East 57th Avenue mid-block, near Prince Edward Street.

The pedestrian was hit by a grey Honda civic driving westbound on East 57th Avenue. This individual was seriously injured and rushed to hospital, but later succumbed to injuries.

Police say the driver of the Honda remained on scene and is cooperating with investigators. At this time, alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

East 57th Avenue between Fraser Street and St. George Street was subsequently closed in both directions for several hours to allow for the investigation.

Anyone with information about the incident, including dashcam video, is asked to call the VPD’s Collision Investigation Unit at 604-717-3012.
