Update:

West Shore RCMP is now reporting that a 48-year-old woman has died after being hit by a car in the 1100-block of Goldstream Ave, Thursday morning.

The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was a resident of Langford. She was struck by a male driver, 50 years old, from Kamloops who was driving a 2003 Nissan Murano.

"This is an unfortunate accident that will have a significant impact to many," said West Shore RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz. "We will continue to investigate the factors to try and bring the family some answers."

A traffic collision analyst was called in to help with the investigation, which had Goldstream Avenue closed off for about three hours from the Trans-Canada Highway off ramp to Spencer Road. All traffic is now open.

Police say there is no evidence to suggest alcohol or drugs as a factor for either person involved.

Original story:

A female pedestrian has been rushed to hospital with emergency crews performing CPR en route after she was struck by a car on Goldstream Ave. Thursday morning.

The collision took place at about 8:30 a.m. at the bottom of a hill by Langford Lake, between Powers Lane and Wenger Terrace. Details are limited at this time, but police say it appears glare from the early morning sun may have been a factor, with the driver not seeing the pedestrian until the last moment.

Speed is not believed to be a factor. There is no word on whether the woman was on the shoulder or the road.

Police are reminding both drivers and pedestrians to be careful in poor driving conditions.

More details will follow.
