RCMP said around 9:30 a.m., officers in Berens River received a call that two people were blocking traffic on a road in the community, and the caller was worried about their safety.

When Mounties arrived, medical personnel from the Berens River nursing station were trying to revive a woman who had been hit by a vehicle.

The 29-year-old woman, from Berens River, was pronounced dead on scene.

Police believe she was hit by a truck, driven by a 62-year-old man who was turning at an intersection when he hit her.

RCMP continue to investigate the incident and an autopsy has been scheduled.
