One person has died after a fatal collision in Richmond city centre on Saturday morning.

Richmond RCMP confirmed on Tuesday morning that a pedestrian who was struck near Granville Avenue between Gilbert and Moffat roads has passed away.

According to Cpl. Dennis Hwang, Richmond RCMP spokesperson, police received reports of the crash at around 6 a.m. on Oct. 14.

The pedestrian was sent to Richmond Hospital but succumbed to her injuries. 

"The driver remained on scene and is cooperating with police," said Hwang, who added impairment is not considered a factor in the collision.

Police had closed down a portion of the road on Saturday for investigation by the criminal collision investigation and integrated collision analysis and reconstruction service teams.

Earlier this week, Richmond RCMP launched a road safety campaign for pedestrians and drivers and warned that “pedestrian safety is a two-way street.”
