Montreal police said a 45-year-old man died after he was struck by a vehicle in Pierrefonds.

It happened Friday evening while he was crossing Ste-Anne Street at the corner of Pierrefonds Boulevard.

Authorities also said poor visibility may have been a factor in the incident, that a number of lights weren't working because of a power outage.
