A young woman from Munsee-Delaware First Nation is dead after being hit by a car over the weekend.

The OPP say the woman was walking along Jubilee Road near Muncey, east of London, around 4am Sunday morning when she was hit.

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene.

Oneida Nation paramedics transported 23 year old Beulah Peters to hospital but she later died of her injuries.

Police continue to investigate and are asking any witnesses to step forward.
