A 28-year-old Guelph man is dead following a collision in the city’s south end on Thursday evening.

The man was attempting to cross Edinburgh Road South, near Carrington Place, at about 7:40 p.m. when he was struck by an eastbound vehicle, explains a Guelph Police Service news release.

As a result, the man suffered “significant injuries” and was later pronounced dead at Guelph General Hospital.

The vehicle driver, a 40-year-old Guelph woman, remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, the release notes. She wasn’t physically hurt in the incident.

A nearby resident provided police with security camera footage of the incident. Investigators believe other motorists in the area at the time may also be able to assist the investigation.

Anyone with information about the collision and has not yet spoken with police is encouraged to call Const. Scott Riche of the traffic unit at  519-824-1212 ext. 7478 or by emailing sriche@guelphpolice.ca.
