An elderly woman was killed Monday afternoon after being struck by a dump truck.

Shortly before 3 p.m., emergency personnel were called to the area of Jubilee Avenue and Osborne Street. A yellow tarp covered the woman’s body as collision analysts investigated the scene.

The woman was hit after she attempted to cross eastbound Osborne and was hit by the southbound travelling truck.

Southbound Osborne was closed at Morley Avenue, while northbound Osborne was open to one lane of traffic. Eastbound Jubliee was closed at Nassau Street. All streets have since reopened.

Charges are not pending against the driver of the truck.
