London Police are investigating following the death of a 32-year-old man who was struck by a vehicle in the downtown core early Monday morning.
London Middlesex EMS say it was around 2:02 a.m. Monday when emergency crews were called to a scene on York Street between Richmond Street and Clarence Street to the report of a collision between a pedestrian and vehicle.
Police say a vehicle travelling eastbound on York struck the pedestrian. Their name is not being released at this time pending next of kin notification.
Investigators say the pedestrian suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision.
When emergency crews arrived on scene they found the victim with vital signs absent.
“The driver stopped at the time and we were able to stop them and identify them,” London Police’s Sgt. Sean Harding told AM980 at the scene, “The investigation is ongoing.”
Harding said it is too early to say if charges are pending in the case.
Police closed off a portion of York Street overnight for the investigation. It has since re-opened.
The investigation is continuing by members of the Traffic Management Unit.
