According to the RCMP, the incident happened just after 11 p.m., along the northbound lanes of Highway 97 near Grizzly Road. A police officer on patrol noticed the collision just after it happened.

Police say Emergency Health Services transported the pedestrian to hospital.
“Sadly, the pedestrian was later declared deceased at hospital,” police said on Saturday.
