Pedestrian killed in crash at Manotick intersection

One pedestrian was killed and another was seriously injured after a vehicle struck them at a Manotick intersection Wednesday night.

Emergency crews responded to the intersection of Bridge Street and Long Island Road just after 7 p.m.

Ottawa police said Thursday morning that one of the pedestrians, a 61-year-old woman, died in hospital. Another pedestrian, a 66-year-old woman, suffered serious injuries.

A vehicle was parked at the intersection Wednesday evening as police investigated the crash.

"It was devastating to learn of the fatal collision on Bridge Street. I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the victims of the collision, their families and friends," Coun. David Brown said in a statement.

"Since last evening’s accident and through this morning, I have been in constant communication with City Staff, Emergency Services, and the Manotick Village Community Association. I have been engaging with all partners to discuss ways to create a safer environment for our community."

The Manotick Village and Community Association says the city needs to address safety in the neighbourhood.

"We have been advocating for improvements for a number of years now," association president Irene Staron said.

"This Bridge Street, something needs to change," Celine said on Thursday.

The intersection of Bridge Street and Long Island Road was closed overnight. Police said just after 7 a.m. Thursday it had reopened.

Police are asking anyone who saw the crash or has dashcam footage to contact them.
