Delta woman killed in accident

Police remind drivers and pedestrians to be extra careful in this weather and seasonal darkness

A Delta woman is dead after being struck by a car on the weekend.

On Saturday, at 4:25 p.m., an 85-year-old woman was crossing at a crosswalk in the 1200-block of 56 Street when she was hit by a vehicle making a left turn.

The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators.

While the incident remains under investigation, it appears heavy rain, darkness and lack of visibility are believed to be factors in the collision.

It marks Delta’s second pedestrian fatality of the year.

Delta Police are reminding the public that weather and lighting at this time of year make conditions less than ideal for pedestrians or drivers.

Drivers are reminded to always check crosswalks several times before entering intersections, especially when turning.  Use full headlights in inclement weather, slow down, and avoid distractions.

Pedestrians should always choose bright clothing and lights – even in daylight – and make eye contact with drivers before entering the roadway.
