A man who was sent to hospital after he was hit by a car while crossing Douglasdale Blvd. on Wednesday morning has now died.

Police were called to the scene at the intersection of Dougladale Blvd. and Douglaswood Way S.E. at about 6:45 a.m.

They say that a man was crossing in a marked crosswalk at the time of the crash.

A vehicle had stopped to allow him to cross, but a second vehicle which was behind the first car pulled around the stopped vehicle and drove through the crosswalk, hitting the pedestrian.

The 20-year-old man was taken to hospital with critical, life-threatening injuries where he later died.

Police are attributing driver inattention to the incident.

Charges are pending against the driver.
