A pedestrian was killed when she was struck by a Super B semi-trailer late Wednesday evening.

At 11:08 p.m., Slocan RCMP and the West Kootenay Traffic Services attended the 5900 block of Highway 6 where the woman was hit.

Investigation revealed that a southbound loaded semi-trailer struck the 35-year-old woman who was standing on the roadway.

“The area had no artificial light and the female was dressed in dark clothes,” said a release issued by WKTS.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed a woman hitchhiking between Playmore Junction at Highway 3 and 6 and Winlaw around that time to contact WKTS.

The name of the deceased will not be released until family has been notified. The BC Coroner and WKTS continue to investigate the fatal crash.
