A 20-year-old woman who was seriously injured Thursday night after being hit by a car in Saint-Michel, has died.
Montreal police spokesperson Caroline Chèvrefils confirmed the death Friday afternoon.
Const. Jean-Pierre Brabant told Global News the incident happened at around 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Saint-Michel Boulevard and Villeray Street.
Two cars, one headed north on Saint-Michel and one headed east on Villeray, collided in the middle of the street. It was at that point, Brabant explained, that one of the vehicles bounced backwards from the impact onto the sidewalk, where the woman was walking.
She was taken to hospital in critical condition, but later died of her injuries. Neither driver was injured.
Montreal police are continuing to investigate the incident, with officers trying to determine whether the initial collision was the result of a vehicle slipping on ice or if a driver had run a red light.
It is the sixth pedestrian death of 2020 on Montreal police territory.
