Ottawa Police say a woman killed on Waller Street Friday morning is the victim of a hit and run.
The woman has been pronounced dead at the scene and Ottawa Police have closed Waller Street in both directions as well as the eastbound lanes of Rideau Street between Dalhousie and Cumberland while they conduct their investigation.
Police are not releasing any details about the woman, but say they are looking for a large commercial truck pulling two trailers.
Const. Marc Soucy with Ottawa Police tells CFRA the driver may not be aware that he or she struck a pedestrian.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 613-236-1222 ext. 2481.
