A pedestrian has died after being hit by a car early Friday morning in Montreal’s Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood.
The 89-year-old man was hit at the intersection of De Maisonneuve and Decarie boulevards at around 5:50 a.m., according to Montreal police.
Police say he was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He died late Friday morning.
The driver of the vehicle involved was also treated for shock, along with a bus driver who witnessed the incident, police say.
According to police spokesperson Raphael Bergeron, the car was travelling northbound on Decarie Boulevard through a green light.
Bergeron says it is possible the pedestrian was crossing the street on a red light.
“It’s tough to confirm by investigators at the moment,” said Bergeron.
Decarie Boulevard between De Maisonneuve Boulevard and Sherbrooke Street was closed to traffic. The area reopened to traffic late Friday morning.
