A 67-year-old man who was struck by a pickup truck on Thursday evening in West Vancouver has died, according to police.

The collision happened at the intersection of 21st Street and Gordon Avenue shortly before 6:00 p.m. PT, about an hour after sunset.

The man was rushed to hospital in critical condition, but succumbed to his injuries Sunday, said West Vancouver police in a statement.

The driver of the truck remained on scene and cooperated with investigators. Alcohol and drug impairment have been ruled out as factors in the collisions, said police.

ICBC has warned that it sees a 76 per cent increase in collisions involving pedestrians during the darkest months of year, from November to January.
