Pedestrian Dies After Being Struck Mid-Block On East 57th Avenue

Vancouver Police are investigating a collision between a car and a pedestrian that has claimed the life of a 38-year-old Vancouver man.

Just after 7 p.m. this evening a pedestrian was walking north, crossing East 57 Avenue mid-block, near Prince Edward Street. A grey Honda Civic was driving west on East 57th Avenue when it struck the pedestrian.

The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and later died in hospital. The driver of the Honda remained on scene and is cooperating with investigators. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

East 57th Avenue will be closed in both directions between Fraser Street and St. George Street for several more hours. Anyone with information about this collision, including dash-cam video, is asked to call the VPD’S Collision Investigation Unit at 604-717-3012.
