The 27-year-old was walking on the odd-numbered side of the street on the rue des Deux-Ponts, in the direction of the Sous-Terre bridge, when she stepped into the street to cross, not in a crosswalk area.
She was hit by a motorcycle, driven by a 20-year-old Swiss driver who had just crossed the Sous-Terre bridge and who was in the cycling lane, heading in the direction of the Saint-Georges bridge.
The motorcycle rider was hospitalized for minor injuries.
Police are looking for witnesses, in particular a white with blue Mitsubishi Canter van who witnessed the scene of the accident. Anyone with information is asked to phone police at +41 22.427.64.50.
