The Port Moody, B.C., intersection where a 71-year-old woman on a mobility scooter was struck and killed by a flat deck truck yesterday reopened on Wednesday morning.
Insp. Ken MacDonald said the woman was riding on her scooter alongside her daughter around 3:30 p.m. PT when she was struck as she was crossing the intersection at the corner of Ungless Way and Ioco Road.
Witness Abir Housininh was just behind the woman and her daughter at the time of the accident.
"And she was screaming, she was saying, 'Please mom, come back, please mom, come back.'"
The woman's neighbour Jacquie Jordan said the victim lived across the street in a friendly, apartment community. Those on the scene tried to save her after the crash.
"There was a band of people over there, and one of them immediately started applying CPR," said Jordan.
MacDonald said the occupants of two other vehicles involved in the collision were both taken to hospital.
Ioco Road between Newport Drive and Ravine Drive reopened around at 6:30 a.m. PT Wednesday after police wrapped up their investigation and the vehicles were removed from the scene.
Police have yet to say what might have caused the crash.
