November 28, 2012 - 3:05 PM

A woman who was struck by a bus earlier this month at the corner of Springfield Dr. and Barlee Rd. has died.

The RCMP released a statement saying the 73-year-old succumbed to her injuries Nov. 22.


The accident occurred Nov. 4 shortly after 5 p.m. and emergency crews responded to a report of a pedestrian being hit by a bus. Apparently, the bus was making a left hand turn onto Springfield Rd. onto Barlee Rd. when an elderly woman stumbled off the curb and was struck. 


The woman was taken to hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries and never recovered.


Rainy weather and poor visibility was considered as contributing factors in the crash.


The investigation is ongoing.


Anyone with information is asked to call Central Okanagan Traffic Services at 250-980-5353.
