RICHMOND, B.C. — A pedestrian has died after being struck by a vehicle on Boxing Day in Richmond, B.C.

Mounties say they were called at about 5:30 p.m. on Saturday after a woman was struck while crossing an intersection at a cross walk.

The victim was taken to hospital, where she died from her injuries.

RCMP say the driver is cooperation, and alcohol and speed have been ruled out as factors contributing to the crash.

Const. Kenneth Lau says in a statement that road conditions are not ideal at this time of year, and asks drivers to slow down and look out for pedestrians.

The RCMP's Criminal Collision Investigation Team has taken over the investigation.
