At precisely 6:55 p.m., Corkum had been crossing Avenue J near Date Avenue before being struck by a passing Nissan Vera.
Authorities confirmed that Corkum suffered fatal injuries immediately following the impact as she was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene.
Several vehicles almost became involved but were able to evade both the victim and the Nissan avoiding any additional collisions.
