A man, believed to be around 60 years old, has died after he was run over by a cube-style truck Thursday afternoon in Montreal’s Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie borough.
Montreal police spokesperson Raphaël Bergeron said the incident happened at around 2:30 p.m. as the truck was exiting an alley onto 9th Avenue, not far from Beaubien Street.
Bergeron said the driver of the truck was attempting to make a left-hand turn southbound onto 9th Avenue, while the pedestrian was heading northbound when the collision occurred.
The pedestrian fell to the ground and was then run over by the truck. He was rushed to hospital in critical condition.
Police confirmed early Friday that the man died from his injuries.
The driver of the truck was treated at the scene for shock. Bergeron said officers had yet to confirm the victim’s identity.
