A Thompson man and a Winnipeg woman have been charged in connection with a hit and run that killed a pedestrian last September. 

A 59-year-old woman died September 19 as she crossed the street in front of R.D. Parker Collegiate in Thompson, and 52-year-old man was seriously injured in the incident.

RCMP said Friday a 24-year-old Thompson man and a 21-year-old Winnipeg woman are facing several charges, including failing to remain at the scene, and obstruction of justice.

Both have been released on a promise to appear in court.
