A young woman has died after being struck by a car Monday evening in Burnaby.

Emergency crews responded at 6 p.m. to Burnaby Mountain Parkway, east of Duthie Avenue, where police say an eastbound Hyundai Genesis struck the girl.

The victim was thrown several feet before landing on the road.

The victim was then rushed to hospital, but later died.

The driver did remain at the scene and is cooperating with police.

It appears the woman was not crossing at the crosswalk, but 20 to 30 feet from it.
