An 80-year-old woman was struck by a car in Montreal's LaSalle borough Friday night.

The accident occurred around 8:50 p.m. on boulevard Angrignon, near boulevard Newman, where the elderly woman attempted to cross between two intersections — making it difficult for the driver, a 40-year-old man, to avoid her.

SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said that the victim was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was then pronounced dead.

Montreal police are currently investigating the accident and are collecting details at the scene of the collision.

Alcohol and speed are not a factor, Brabant stated.
