The 31-year-old man who was driving a car that police say struck and killed a woman in northwest Edmonton last month has been charged in connection with the incident.

In a news release issued late Monday afternoon, police said Maurice Tsang was arrested earlier in the day and charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death.

At 10:05 p.m., on June 2, police were called to a collision in the area of 142 Street and 153 Avenue. Police said officers were told a car travelling north on 142 Street lost control, veered off the road and hit a 27-year-old woman who was walking on a sidewalk.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene while Tsang was taken to hospital to be treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

While a charge has been laid in the case, police said their investigation continues and they are still looking for the driver of a black sedan “who was driving nearby when the collision occurred.”
