Police seek witnesses to fatal incident

Clearwater RCMP are looking for witnesses who saw a fatal motor vehicle incident at Brookfield Mall on Saturday

Clearwater RCMP are looking for witnesses who saw a fatal motor vehicle incident at Brookfield Mall on Saturday.

According to the police, at approximately 1130 a.m. on Aug. 11, members of Southeast District RCMP Traffic Services and Clearwater RCMP responded to a report of a single vehicle and pedestrian incident in the Brookfield Shopping Center parking lot.

Upon the arrival of the police at the scene, members of the public were administering CPR to the pedestrian who was involved. Unfortunately, attempts to revive the pedestrian were unsuccessful and the pedestrian died from his injuries.

Investigation has determined a red 2008 Ford F-350 pickup had been backing out of a parking stall in the parking lot and struck the pedestrian.

The weather and parking lot conditions were ideal at the time and not considered an issue with this incident. The parking lot was taped off in the area for a few hours.

The pedestrian, identified as a 78-year-old man from Clearwater, died at the scene. At this time RCMP are not releasing the name of the man, as next of kin are still being located.

A Southeast District RCMP collision reconstructionist attended the scene, assisting with the investigation.

The driver of the pickup truck is notably shaken over this incident and is cooperating with the police. RCMP Victim Services from Clearwater were brought in to assist family members and individuals involved in dealing with this truly tragic and unfortunate incident.

At this time alcohol and/or drugs are not believed to be contributing factors. Investigation will continue into the cause of this incident.

RCMP request that anyone who may have witnessed this incident please contact the Clearwater RCMP Detachment at 250-674-2237.
