Authorities say that an elderly woman suffered serious injuries Sept. 6 after a vehicle hit her while she walked across Williams Lake Road in Halifax. The crash occurred at the intersection of Herring Cove Road shortly after 3:30 p.m., resulting in the woman's death.
The 81-year-old woman was using a marked crosswalk at the intersection when the accident happened, and the signal for the crosswalk was on to allow her to walk across. However, a 71-year-old male driver who was turning right onto Herring Cove Road struck her. Paramedics took the woman to hospital, but she died from her injuries on Sept. 7. Police did not file charges against the driver pending further investigation.
