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.
