The incident involved only one vehicle, and met the criteria to call in ICARS, which happens when severe or fatal injuries occur, explained the Ridge Meadows watch commander.
The officer revealed that an individual was transported to hospital, but would not comment any further until family members could be properly notified.
The SUV involved in the incident caused some damage to a house and porch, with the vehicle reportedly striking the individual while reversing.
According to a witness, the individual suffered critical injuries and later died as a result despite initial treatment by Emergency Health Services.
The watch commander explained that there was no threat to the public and that a few RCMP members remained on the scene but would be wrapping up shortly.
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
