COQUITLAM — For the second time in less than a month, a pedestrian has been struck and killed in the Tri-Cities.
The latest incident occurred Saturday just after noon, when an elderly woman was hit by a car on Austin Avenue and Marmont Street.
The name of the woman, who died at the scene, has not been released.
Coquitlam RCMP note it appears the vehicle went out of control and drove up on to a sidewalk, hitting the victim.
Media reports have suggested the driver was trying to park his car at the time.
The driver stayed at the scene, while the roads were shut down for several hours for the police investigation.
Mounties are expected to release more details on the crash in the coming days.
On Jan. 17, Roland Webb was struck and killed by a dump truck in Anmore as he crossed East Road near Hummingbird Drive.
The 37-year-old father of two was a supervisor at BC Ambulance and a member of Coquitlam Search and Rescue.
Police said the investigation into that crash is still ongoing.
