Sarnia Police and Ministry of Transportation experts are looking at the transport which was involved in a collision which killed a woman Monday.

Sarnia Police say the 58-year-old woman who died after being struck by a transport truck was the common-law spouse of the driver.

Around 6 yesterday morning, police were called to the Tim Horton’s on London Line when a pedestrian was hit by a transport truck near the entrance to the drive thru. The woman was taken to Bluewater Health and then to London’s Health Sciences Center where she died of her injuries. A post-mortem is being done on the woman’s body today.

Const. Heather Emmons says the woman, whose name has yet to be released, had just got out of the transport when she was struck but did not slip or fall.

Emmons says one of the aspects they’re focusing on is the mechanical state of the truck. The transport truck has been seized and Ministry of Transportation experts will look over the vehicle today. “They look at things like brakes and the transmission,” she says.

And Emmons says police would still like to hear from anyone who may have seen what happened. “It was 6  in the morning, on private property maybe someone was in the Tim Horton’s that was sitting there, and saw what happened,” she says.

Emmons says police are looking at every aspect of the incident adding there is “nothing suspicious; absolutely not” about the woman’s death.
