Elderly woman dies in hospital after being hit by car in Brampton
Peel Regional Police say a 78-year-old woman has died in hospital after she was struck by a car in Brampton Friday evening.

When authorities arrived on scene, the woman was found in life-threatening condition and was transported to a trauma centre.
The driver remained at the scene.
Police identified the victim as Deotee Bhagwandin, who was pronounced dead in hospital early this morning.
Speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the collision, but police are looking to speak to witnesses and obtain dash cam video of the incident that anyone may have.
Numerous pedestrians were struck in the GTA Friday evening, including at Meadowpine and Meadowvale boulevards in Mississauga where another elderly woman was left with serious injuries.
In that incident, the driver fled the scene.
