Woman Dies After Being Struck By Vehicle At Pull-Out

RCMP in Golden say that a 54 year old woman from Quebec died on Sunday after being hit by a car.

It happened at a pull-out East of Field, when a vehicle entering the pull-out struck the woman as she was taking pictures.

Police say that the driver of a 2017 Kia nearly hit another pedestrian in that area, which sees high volumes of tourist traffic.

The victim had been visiting from out of province with her husband, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver and his passengers were taken to hospital in Banff with minor injuries.

Police say that alcohol was not a factor in this incident, and note that their investigation continues.
