One day after images of items belonging to a woman fatally struck by a garbage truck in North York were released, investigators said they have identified her.

The incident occurred around 2 p.m. on Tuesday on Barkwood Crescent, near Don Mills Road and McNicoll Avenue.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found a female pedestrian suffering from critical injuries. 

The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment, but the 68-year-old woman later died.

Following the woman’s death, police appealed to the public for someone to come forward and help identify her.

Investigators released photos of the woman’s keychain, purse and glasses that were left at the scene in the hopes someone would recognize the items.
