A 65-year-old woman has died after being struck by a car Sunday afternoon.

The victim was walking on the north shoulder of 14 Avenue near Caribou Street around 4:30 p.m. when she was hit. Police say the suspect vehicle, a blue 2007 Honda Accord, fled the scene and was located about an hour later not far from the accident scene. The vehicle had black winter rims, no wheel covers.

It is believed the Accord was travelling westbound and passed another vehicle on the right before hitting the pedestrian. The victim's name is not being released at the request of her family.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the vehicle in the minutes leading up to it. If you have any information, contact Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-84177.
