An Oliver man has turned himself in following the death of a pedestrian on Tuesday morning.

Const. Kris Clark, media relations for the Southeast District RCMP, said a 46-year-old man attended the Oliver RCMP detachment on the evening of Nov. 25. He was identified as a suspect in connection with the fatal crash and was released without charges pending further investigation.

Betty Anstey was attempting to cross Main Street at the intersection of Fairview Road and Highway 97 at 6:21 a.m. when she was struck by a northbound vehicle.
