A Victoria woman who was struck by a motorist at the corner of Blanshard and View streets last week has died.
On March 18, police were called to the downtown intersection shortly before 10:30 a.m. for a report that a woman had been hit. Paramedics transported her to hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries, which she later succumbed to.
The motorist who struck the woman remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation, the Victoria Police Department said. It remains unclear whether the woman was hit while on or off the crosswalk, but police are continuing their investigation.
Anyone who saw the incident or who has dashcam footage of what happened is asked to reach out to the VicPD report desk at 250-995-7654, extension 1.
