An 18-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by an RCMP cruiser while walking across the street in Surrey, B.C. on Monday night.

The pedestrian was struck around 9:40 p.m. near the intersection of 98 Avenue and King George Boulevard. She was critically injured and taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police say the young woman was not in a marked crosswalk when she was hit. The Mountie driving the cruiser, a two-year member of the force, was not injured in the crash.

Abbotsford police are now investigating, and investigators are expected to be on scene for much of Tuesday.
