A 53-foot truck struck and killed a pedestrian in her thirties early this morning, according to Jean-Pierre Brabant, an SPVM spokesperson. The collision took place near the Place du Commerce on Île-des-Soeurs at around 7:15 a.m., Brabant confirmed.

According to testimony from multiple witnesses, the truck was going south when it hit a woman crossing the street near the shopping centre. The driver "could not avoid" the pedestrian, Brabant said, and she was ultimately declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

The thirty-year-old driver of the truck was unharmed by the incident, but was treated for shock, according to Brabant.

The SPVM's accident squad is currently investigating the circumstances of the collision.
