Charges are pending against a 31-year-old man after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a car on the sidewalk in the city's northwest, Edmonton police say.
Around 10 p.m. Wednesday, a Subaru WRX travelling north on 142nd Street lost control and veered off the road just north of 153rd Avenue, police said in a news release Thursday.
The car struck a 27-year-old woman, police told CBC News. The woman died at the scene.
The driver of the Subaru was taken to hospital with serious, non-life-threatening injuries.
The man will face charges including impaired driving, police said.
Drivers are asked to avoid the area as the EPS major collision investigations section continues its investigation.
