Vancouver senior struck and killed by suspected impaired driver – BC

Vancouver police say they believe the driver that fatally struck a 78-year-old woman in the West End Tuesday night may have been impaired.

The woman was hit by a white Nissan SUV as she was crossing Beach Avenue at Broughton Street just before 8 p.m., police said.

She was taken to hospital but did not survive her injuries.

A 30-year-old man was arrested at the scene, and police said they believe driver impairment was “a factor” in the collision.

The driver has since been released pending a future court date.
