Pedestrian dies following collision in East Vancouver

VANCOUVER Police are investigating a collision that occurred Wednesday evening and has claimed the life of a 23-year-old Vancouver woman.

At about around 9:15 p.m. on April 4, a young woman and her friend were in a crosswalk on East 12 Avenue at Clark Drive when she was struck by a white Honda Civic turning west from Clark. Paramedics took the pedestrian to hospital with what was originally believed to be minor injuries. However, her condition deteriorated and she died early Thursday morning.

The 61-year-old driver from Vancouver remained on scene and is cooperating with officers. Impairment and speed do not appear to be factors in this collision.

This is Vancouver’s second pedestrian death of 2018.
