VANCOUVER – A 75-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by a car while crossing a Vancouver street Monday night.

The woman was walking across Oak Street at 53rd Avenue shortly before 10 p.m. when the southbound car hit her, according to police. She died at the scene.

The 19-year-old man who was driving the car remained at the crash scene and is said to be cooperating with the police.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the collision. The young man’s car has been towed to be tested by mechanics and investigators have seized surveillance video taken in the area of the crash.

This marks the eighth pedestrian to be killed by a vehicle in Vancouver this year.
