Coroner identifies man fatally struck by car

The B.C. Coroners Service has identified Claude Joseph Peter Gauthier, 78, of Nanaimo, as the man who died after being struck by a car in Nanaimo's hospital district Friday.

Gauthier was walking across Dufferin Crescent near the Seafield Crescent intersection at about 5:30 p.m. when he was hit by a car driven by an 80-year-old woman.

Road conditions at the time included heavy fog, which reduced visibility.

Gauthier died from severe injuries shortly after arriving at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital about 100 metres from the accident scene.

The B.C. Coroners Service and Nanaimo RCMP Traffic Services are continuing their investigation into the incident.
