Woman dies after being hit by garbage truck at downtown gas station
Investigators are looking into possibility that woman fell to the ground just before impact
A 26-year-old woman has died after she was hit by a garbage truck at a gas station in downtown Montreal.
The incident took place just before 6:30 a.m. at a Petro-Canada gas station near the corner of de Maisonneuve Boulevard and de Lorimier Avenue.
Police say the truck was backing up when it hit the woman, and investigators are looking into the possibility that the woman fell prior to the accident, making it virtually impossible for the driver to see her.
Investigators are speaking with the driver as well as possible witnesses in hopes of determining exactly what happened.
