Calgary police are investigating a collision that left a pedestrian dead over the weekend.
Around 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10, a woman was walking south from the northeast corner to the southeast corner of the intersection of 24 Street SW and 162 Avenue SE, according to police, when a maroon 2009 Honda Pilot, driven by a 49-year-old woman, was driving south on 24 Street SW and made a turn onto 162 Avenue SW heading east.
According to police, the Honda hit the pedestrian when it drove into the eastbound lanes and hit a bus shelter.
It then crossed both eastbound travel lanes and stopped on the median facing north.
The woman who was crossing the street was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition and was declared dead a short time later.
The woman driving the Honda wasn’t hurt.
Investigators say impairment and speed don’t appear to be factors in the incident.
