No charges in Dartmouth collision that killed woman on scooter
HALIFAX – Police say they won’t lay charges in a crash that killed a woman in a Dartmouth crosswalk earlier this year.
The collision happened at the intersection of Thistle Street and Victoria Road on May 3.
Officers say a pickup truck was travelling south on Victoria Road and proceeded to make a left turn onto Thistle Street on a green light.
Investigators say while turning, the truck hit a 57-year-old woman crossing the street on a motorized scooter in a marked crosswalk.
The woman suffered life-threatening injuries and later died in hospital.
The police investigation concluded that the “do not walk” signal was being displayed at the time that the driver was making the turn.
